Anniversary concert raises £3500 for local charity

Local choir, 'Voices in Harmony' have raised more than £3500 for Mary Stevens Hospice following a 21st anniversary concert at Dudley Town Hall.

The Cradley Heath-based vocal group took to the stage to celebrate 21 years since being founded in 1997, and were joined throughout the evening by special guests including The Gentlemen Songsters, Colla Voce and Viva Musica in a show which saw more than 120 singers perform together.

All of the money raised through the concert has now been donated to families relying on Mary Stevens Hospice, with representatives of the choir handing over a cheque for £3860 to fundraisers last week. Charlotte Schofield, Head of Fundraising and Lottery for the charity said:

“It was an evening that will live long in the memory of everyone in attendance, and a truly wonderful way to celebrate 21 years of such a fantastic organisation.

"For our patients to have been chosen as the beneficiaries of such a wonderful event really is overwhelming and we're so grateful to everyone who worked so hard to bring the concert to life in support of our families."

Matt Dudley, head of publicity for Voices in Harmony, added:

"To celebrate the choirs milestone with such a memorable concert and raise much needed funds for a very worthy cause, was the best birthday present we could have."
