Welsh Hospital Choir sings loud for young cancer patients

This December saw the 160 strong Welsh Hospital Choir sing the 33rd annual Cardiff Carol Concert, raising funds for children and young people with cancer, and their families.

Welsh Hospital Choir sings loud for young cancer patients

Over the past 33 years this festive evening has become extremely popular – marking the start of the festive season for many. It has raised over £100,000 for CLIC Sargent whilst also raising valuable awareness of the charity in South Wales.

This year's event welcomed performances from The Brass Ensemble of the Welsh Guards, The Choir of Whitchurch Primary School and Bone Appetit, a trombone quartet from the Royal Welsh College of Music.

The evening was backed by Jane Watts, internationally acclaimed Welsh organist and conducted by the incredibly popular David John Davies.

Thank you

CLIC Sargent Fundraising Manager Hannah Worrall said: “We are so grateful for the continued support we receive from the Cardiff Carol Concert and to all those who involved in making it such a success.

“The generous funds raised will be spent, helping children and young people in Wales with cancer, live life to the full.”

Save the date

Next years’ date is already set for Wednesday 14 December 2016.

The event is held at St David’s Hall, Cardiff and welcomes guests of all ages to come and enjoy a truly festive evening – carol singing and swaying along to the musical performances before them.
