Gobstoppers GLEE Club went back in time to the 1940’s as part of their charity concert to raise money for Help for Heroes.

The event took place at Bovingdon Memorial Hall, to commemorate the D Day Landings and highlight the importance of Bovingdon during the Second World War.

The event was a sell out and huge success, which raised £1’525 for the chosen charity.

The Glee Club was set up three years ago by Gobstoppers principals Chris and Victoria Williams as a singing group for adults who just want to sing for fun, socialise and raise money for charity.

Since it’s birth, the club has sang at eight concerts, raised more than £7,000 for charity and even sang live on BBC Three Counties Radio.

The 1940’s Night was also supported by living war hero Simon Weston and Hemel Hempstead MP Mike Penning.

Weston is a veteran of the British Army who became well known throughout the United Kingdom for his recovery and charity work after suffering severe burn injuries during the Falklands War.
