Glasgow Christmas carol concert Dec 2017

Inverness saw the return of the ever popular Highland Hospitals Carol Concert in aid of CLIC Sargent to the Eden Court Theatre.

The afternoon was a big hit amongst the audience, with a beautiful mix of traditional & modern carols, and a guest appearance from the talented young choir at Inverness Royal Academy. 

Donna Bednarek, local CLIC Sargent Fundraising Engagement Manager commented: “It was a pleasure to attend the concert and it’s been lovely to work with the committee in the build up. They are a fantastic, dedicated bunch and their support over the years has been truly invaluable.”

Glasgow sings for young lives 

CLIC Sargent’s 39th Annual Carol Concert at the Royal Concert Hall in Glasgow took place on 1 December, and raised an incredible £35,000! 

Together with the Glasgow Hospitals’ Choir, accompanist Ed Cohen, the Glasgow Chamber Orchestra and Busby Primary School Junior Choir, over 1,000 supporters attended the event to raise money to help young lives facing cancer this Christmas.  Glasgow concert

Rachael McLean, CLIC Sargent Fundraising Engagement Manager, said: “We’d like to express our sincere gratitude to our kind event sponsors, La Bonne Auberge, and everyone who sponsored a carol or advert in the event programme.”

Additionally Elgin, Dundee and Aberdeen held their Christmas carol concerts earlier this month, raising vital funds for children and families this Christmas. Fantastic performances were given by all to kick start the festive season with charitable cheer.

A big thank you

Thank you to everyone who has worked tirelessly on these events, including organisers, musicians and attendees who have raised funds for CLIC Sargent.

Every penny raised is so appreciated to ensure the impact of cancer on families’ lives is limited and that they receive all the support and help they need to thrive, not just survive.
