This time the band will be supported by the Perfect Pitch Choir.

The concert is in aid of Bakewell-based charity, The Goboka Rwanda Trust, which supports self-sustaining community projects in Rwanda. The charity was founded by Heather Thomas in 2009.

Masson Mills Band has a strong tradition of raising funds for Derbyshire-based charities and other good causes.

The Perfect Pitch Choir - finalists in Britain’s Got Talent 2017 - will be led by their choir-master Emma Hopkins.

Heather Thomas said: “I am delighted and most grateful that these excellent local entertainers have again offered their services to boost our fundraising efforts. I know we’ll be in for a very special evening so do come along to support us.”

The concert starts at 7pm.

Tickets cost £8 and are available from Heather Thomas on 07974 133091 or Lesley Brennan on 07860 839675. Advance booking is recommended as the concert has been a sell-out in recent years.

A bar will be available for interval drinks and light refreshments and there will be a raffle.
