A JAZZ, opera, comedy and dancing show that featured the likes of TV actor Adrian Scarborough raised £1,575 for charity, it has been announced.

Pitch Perfect was held at Berkhamsted Cricket Club in June to raise money for London-based Great Ormond Street Hospital for children.

Tim Johnson, executive director of the charity, said: “We would like to thank all the members at Berkhamsted Cricket Club for their support and choosing us to benefit from Pitch Perfect.

“The money will help us continue to work with children across the UK, and indeed the world, with serious and often life-threatening conditions.”

Pitch Perfect featured performances by club member and Royal Opera House tenor Phillip Conway-Brown and his wife Kathryn Jenkin. Kathryn also did a duet with her son Oliver Brown.

Club chairman Julian Dent said: “Pitch Perfect is now firmly established on Berkhamsted’s calendar as a great event for families.

“It’s a fantastic combination of the talents within our wonderful town.”

Tim Buckley, chief fundraiser for the club, said: “Despite the appalling weather leading up to the event, we had fantastic support from everyone who came to the concert.

“Special thanks are due to our sponsors, without whom the cricket club could not have mounted the event.”

Anyone interested in sponsoring or getting involved in the event when it is staged next year should call Berkhamsted Cricket Club on 01442 863389.
