A LAST Night of the Proms celebration at The Commemoration Hall in Huntingdon attracted 180 people who all sang You'll Never Walk Alone in tribute to the town's late macebearer, Arthur Adams.

The event, which raised £1,500 for good causes, was one of a series of fundraisers organised by the Mayor of Huntingdon, Councillor Jeff Dutton, and featured the Somersham Town Band.

The event also provided a chance for a musical farewell to Mr Adams, Huntingdon macebearer for 12 years, who died last month.

Money from the celebration will support the Mayor's charities - Huntingdon branches of Carers UK and Macmillan Cancer Support.

Cllr Dutton said: "What a brilliant evening this was, a fundraising event full of fun and the total monies raised during the evening exceeded £1,500, raising the total charity pot to more than £9,000 to date."

Performing Arts at the Commemoration Hall ran a bar, with all profits going to the Commemoration Hall Charity. A raffle also raised almost £300.
