The annual CLIC Sargent Cardiff Carol Concert saw the 200 strong Welsh Hospital Choir take to the stage at the prestigious St David’s Hall in Cardiff.

The Welsh Hospital Choir has been raising funds for CLIC Sargent for 30 years, and during this time they have raised over £100,000 for children and young people with cancer.

The Welsh Hospitals Choir is made up of National Health Service staff and their friends from across Wales. Individual members of the choir give up their time to rehearse for the concert.

This year is not only a 30 year celebration for the concert itself, but also for three very committed choir members, Margery Davis, Dr Alun Rolfe and Barbara Leigh, who have contributed towards the success of this fundraising event.

CLIC Sargent fundraising manager, James King says: “Every year so much hard work is put into this concert by so many different people including the committee, the choirs and everyone else involved in so many different ways. Their hard work really helps us support children, young people and their families in Wales going through some of the most challenging times of their lives."

The concert took place at St David’s Hall and was led by stalwart conductor, David Davies.This year showcased some incredibly talented acts including Sian Newman, the Sax Family, the Fanfare Trumpeters, the Brass Ensemble of the Welsh Guards, organist Jane Watts and the local junior choir from Gabalfa Primary School.
