A CONCERT organised by Pershore Rotary Club raised a bumper sum for charity.
A total of £1,300 will be going to Malaria No More UK - a charity which raises funds and awareness to save lives in Africa where more than 1,600 people die each day, mainly young children.
The charity backs the global goal of near zero deaths by 2015 and is supported by a number of charities including Andy Murray and David Beckham.
The night, which featured the Fat Chance Comedy Band, saw more than 75 Rotarians pack into Eckington Village Hall and enjoy a plate of Kuka Paka, a Kenyan dish of chicken cooked in coconut curry sauce.
Cairns Boston, event organiser and former president of the club, said: "I was delighted with the support of club members and friends for this hugely entertaining evening and for this wonderful charity.
"The band really made members laugh and the total raised was excellent."
