Choir concert for hospital funds


A CONCERT, put on by an Ilkeston fundraising group, has raised more than £400 for Ilkeston Community Hospital.

The Rolls Royce Male Voice Choir performed at the Charnos Hall at the Heanor Road hospital in front of an audience, which included new Erewash Mayor Cllr Jennifer Hulls and her husband and consort Robert.

Cllr Hulls is now the patron of the League of Friends, which organised the event on April 21.

The choir, along with soloist Judith Hanson, presented classical and modern songs.

League chairman Mike Perry said: “Particularly appreciated and requested by members, was the Welsh medley of songs which included Calon Lan.”
