R Charity Cheque Presentation

Posted on 08 Jan 2016

The Mount Show Choir was delighted to welcome to school Events Fundraiser, Loren Slade from the Royal Liverpool University Hospital's R Charity and present her with a cheque for £1,000. The money was raised by parents and pupils at The Mount from ticket sales for the charity's Christmas concert 'Celebrate a Liverpool Life' held at Liverpool's Anglican Cathedral, at which the Choir performed at alongside the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Choir and acclaimed mezzo soprano Kathryn Rudge. 

 The event, full of seasonal carols and songs, helped audience members to remember loved-ones at a special time of year, and also generated over £11,000 for the new Royal Hospital, which is currently being built. 

 The R Charity Appeal target is to raise £10 million to fund state-of the art equpiment and facilities to help patients suffering from cancer and heart disease, and to also save the sight of many Merseysiders.
