Organiser Christopher Lawrence said: 'The sponsors, including Archant and May Gurney, made a big difference as it meant that we were able to cover all the costs before we had sold a ticket so everyone who came knew that their money was going directly to the charity.
'There are a few small bills still to be settled but the final net amount will be around this sum (�9,000). As always, it was a team effort not only from our committee but also from all the musicians and an army of helpers and the Abbey community.
