Crowds of Frozen fans flocked to the Rex Cinema, Elland, to join in a special sing-a-long showing of the smash-hit Disney animated film.

The morning saw hundreds of ‘Elsas’, ‘Annas’ and ‘Olafs’ descend on the cinema to belt out “Let it Go”.

Both old and young waited in eager anticipation for the magical sing-a-long and some even tested their vocal chords before the show began.

Inspired by Hans Christian Andersen’s fairy tale The Snow Queen, the film tells the story of a fearless princess who sets off on an epic journey alongside a rugged iceman, his loyal pet reindeer, and Olaf the snowman to find her estranged sister, whose icy powers have trapped the kingdom in eternal winter.

Organiser Sally Moore said: “It went absolutely brilliantly, so many people came up and said what a great cause it was.

“Loads of the children wanted pictures taken with me in my Elsa costume and it was great to see everyone getting into it and singing along.”

The event, sponsored by Oddfellow Huddersfield, raised £1,700 in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support, the charity which helped Sally during her breast cancer battle.

She will complete a mammoth trek acoss the Grand Canyon to raise money for the charity and proceeds from the sing-a-long event will help her reach the £3,500 target she has pledged.

Further donations to Sally’s charity trek can be made online at www.justgiving.com/sally-moore15

Sally said she would like to thank all who helped with the event.
