HUNDREDS of pounds will be donated to a pair of charities following the success of a musical fundraising event.

The 'piano and prosecco' event took place at the home of Sally Johnstone in Penyffordd over the weekend.

It was organised by Mrs Johnstone, her daughter Alicia and piano teacher Amanda Morris.

Fourteen talented children aged between six and 18 performed a variety of pieces to a high standard throughout Saturday afternoon while guests enjoyed prosecco and cakes.

Mrs Johnstone, who also runs Hope Green Private Day Nursery in Penyffordd, said: "This is the second piano and prosecco event we have done.

"The first was two years ago and raised £900 for the Cystic Fibrosis Trust. "We organised the first one because a girl who went to our nursery had Cystic Fibrosis and was going to school.

"This time we raised £825 for the Cystic Fibrosis Trust and Ski Inclusive."

Mrs Johnstone said the event received support in the form of free prosecco from Tesco and Kent Supplies, as well as chairs from Tents and Events and cakes which were baked by family members.

"It was lovely," Mrs Johnstone added.

"We're so proud of all of the children who performed."
