The group, led by Michael Kilpatrick, performed a programme of music by Duke Ellington from the 1930s to the ‘50s.

In an evening of foot-tapping swing and sumptuous jazz, the vocals were provided by Jane Mayo.

The concert – presented by the Royston Methodist Church and the Rotary Club of Royston – had a near-sell out audience who raised £600 to be shared between the church and Garden House Hospice Care.

Church Community Events Team chair Brian Norwood said: “This, now annual, collaboration with the Rotary Club is proving to be very successful and a wonderful example of how churches and other organisations can come together to provide entertainment for the community while raising funds for good causes.”
