George Stephenson's memorial concert raises £12,500

VIDEO: The money will go towards CLIC Sargent and Plymouth College's sports pavilion

In memory of George Stephenson, who sadly died from cancer at the age of just 24, Exeter based group La La Choirs hosted an evening of music in celebration of the much loved, talented musician and sportsman.

The event, held in Plymouth earlier this month, raised an incredible £12,500 for CLIC Sargent and Plymouth College's sports pavilion - where George studied and played cricket. 

Students from George's old college and the CLIC Sargent musicians performed on the night alongside La La Choirs. 

Alex Hill, George's friend, said: "I don't think I've met a more all rounded, talented individual. You can name anything in the world and he was good at it.

"The way he approached life, even through the darkest times, is an inspiration to absolutely anybody in the world."

Sam Abrahams, director of La La Choirs, added: "As soon as I met George, I knew he was something special. He was a young man full of life, he appreciated every single moment of every single day. He really was just an amazing young man. 

"It's a great feeling to organise this memorial event for him and raise money for the cricket pavilion and CLIC Sargent - who supported George through difficult times."
