Coull Quartet evening raises over £1,500

The Worsted Weavers Guild hosted its second in a series of annual charitable music events.

The event boasted a selection of classical works by Haydn and Debussy, all performed by the Coull Quartet from the University of Warwick.

The Coull Quartet, this year celebrating its 40th anniversary, has performed worldwide, including in China, Brazil, Germany and Poland.

CLIC Sargent Fundraising Manager Lydia Buckmaster said: “The Worsted Weavers Guild put together a wonderful evening and the Coull Quartet played beautifully.

"Everyone in attendance was generous, helping the event to raise a fantastic £1,578 to support children and young people with cancer.”

Outstanding musical evening

Concert organiser Donald Singer said: “The Worsted Weavers Guild of Coventry decided to support CLIC Sargent because of its excellent clinical and practical work, both nationally and locally, to help the whole family deal with the impact of cancer and its treatment on children and young people.

“Our guest musicians – the Coull Quartet – provided an outstanding musical evening in the beautiful historic setting of Packington Hall, which was made available through the generosity of the Earl of Aylesford.

“We are very grateful to all those who supported the charity concert, by coming to the event or through donations to CLIC Sargent, having heard about its excellent work through our activities.

“We look forward to our third charity concert, to be held in the summer of 2016, once again in support of CLIC Sargent.”
