Ash­ford’s Nor­ton Knatch­bull School re­cently held its first NKS In­ter­act Club event.

The Mozart to Mod­ern evening was or­gan­ised by pupils who run the NKS In­ter­act Club – a Ro­tary­sup­ported group which works to raise funds by hav­ing fun.

More than 100 peo­ple at­tended and raised £750 for two char­i­ties.

The event show­cased dif­fer­ent mu­si­cal tal­ent at the school, from jazz to a gui­tar quar­tet, as well as bar­ber­shop and rock groups.

Past pupils also re­turned to play dur­ing the evening.

NKS In­ter­act Club pres­i­dent Ben Uden said: “The first of­fi­cial event for the NKS In­ter­act Club spon­sored by the Ash­ford Ro­tary Club was a great suc­cess, rais­ing over £750 for our cho­sen char­i­ties.

“The event dis­played some of the out­stand­ing mu­si­cians we have at NKS, and the at­mos­phere was fan­tas­tic.

“I would like to thank every­one in­volved and all those that came to the event,” he added.

The evening raised money for the char­i­ties Teenage Cancer Trust and Mon­go­lia’s Lost Chil­dren.
