A FUNDRAISING musical night to strengthen links between Doncaster and Belgium certainly hit the right note.

For The Blue Bell in Hatfield played host to professional singer Louise Molyneux for an event aimed at collecting funds of the town’s twinning visits with the Belgian town of Merksplas.

The evening also featured a raffle and a quiz. The two towns are linked after it was discovered that Hatfield born Corporal John Harper VC died near the town during World War II in a fierce firefight and several visits, including trips for school pupils, have already been organised between the two.
