HOPES ARE BEING RAISED that this year the Grampian Hospitals’ Christmas Carol concert will be the most successful ever!
The concert is provided by the Grampian Health Services Choir and will take place in the Elgin Town Hall on Sunday, December 3 at 2.30pm.
For over thirty years the choir has performed in the run-up to Christmas and raised funding for CLIC Sergent – which enables children and young people who are affected by cancer not just to survive, but to thrive.
A spokesman for the choir explained why CLIC Sergeant is their chosen cause: “CLIC Sargent is the UK’s leading cancer charity for children and young people, and their families.
“They provide clinical, practical, financial and emotional support to help the families cope with cancer and get the most out of life. They are there from diagnosis onwards and aim to help the whole family deal with the impact of cancer and its treatment, life after treatment and, in some cases, bereavement.”
Once again Tim Tricker will conduct the choir who will also see the return of Isobel Burnie as accompanist, the Elgin High School vocal group, Alan Adams on bass trombone, the Bon Accord brass quintet and Concordia String Orchestra.
Tickets for the concert this year are available now from Sound and Vision on South Street in Elgin.
