A concert held at the Windsor Boys School has raised £700 to help a little girl walk .
The event on Thursday was for Vivi Gregory-Osborne, seven, of York Avenue, who suffers from spastic quadriplegic cerebral palsy which affects her arms and legs. Her family is trying to raise more than £50,000 to pay for treatment to help her walk unaided.
The evening featured performances from the Royal Harmonics, Windsor Glee Club, Windsor first and upper Schools Choirs, the Windsor Boys' School Big Band and soloists from both Windsor Girls School and the Windsor Boys' School.
There were well over 150 performers.
The Windsor first schools Choir is a new venture for James Manwaring, director of music for Windsor upper schools.
He said: "I just want to get every student in Windsor singing and making music. It makes sense to start to work across the schools and bring students together to sing and perform."
