A Conisbrough church was filled to overflowing for the funeral of a well-loved entertainer and community champion.

George (Juddy) Hamshaw died aged 68, from a rare brain tumour that was diagnosed just weeks before his death.

Members of the charity entertainment troupe Stars in Your Eyes lined St Peter’s Church entrance as the coffin passed by on Friday morning.

Compere and singer Mr Hamshaw founded the Conisbrough group almost 11 years ago, and helped to raise over £750,000 to benefit local charities and concerns.
