For the 34th year running, the Midlands Hospitals’ Choir performed at the Birmingham Town Hall, raising £2,800 for young lives against cancer.
The choir, which is drawn from members of health and social care organisations throughout the Midlands, sang to a packed-out Birmingham Town Hall for two performances. This year the matinee was performed in the presence of the Lord Mayor of Birmingham Councillor Carl Rice and Lady Mayoress Mrs Deed Curry.
The choir was supported by a superb list of special guests including Tenor Kieran Jones and Organist Richard Dawson and the Four Oaks Cluster Choir. The choir was led by James Llewelyn Jones, accompanied by Mellissa Morris and once again the 10-piece ensemble, Gemini Brass who kindly donated their fee to CLIC Sargent.
Over £2,800 was raised for CLIC Sargent on the day from the retiring collections, and this fantastic amount is set to increase when the profit from the ticket sales is received.
CLIC Sargent Fundraising Manager Anna Oliver said: “I’d like to thank everyone involved in the concert, the support that the Midlands Hospitals’ Choir has shown for CLIC Sargent over the last 34 years is phenomenal and we are very grateful to them.
"The collection was organised by our fabulous team of volunteers who have attended the event for many years and looked super snazzy in their Christmas attire.”
