Gala Music Night Swells Charity Funds **Current**
The Rotary Club of Durham Bede joined together with Lloyds Banking Group, Durham to raise funds for two local charities with a concert held at Elvet Church, Durham.
The Gala concert “Friday Night Is Music Night” was held on Friday 3rd November 2017 to benefit St. Cuthbert’s Hospice, Heel and Toe Children’s Charity and also the British Heart Foundation.
The members of the Rotary Club of Durham Bede arranged this, their annual concert, along with major support from the Lloyds Banking Group, Durham, who supported the event with Matched Giving.
Elvet Methodist Church, Durham was the setting for the event which featured a wide range of popular music ranging from Films, Opera, The Musicals and Folk provided by the young musicians of the Durham County Wind Band; Leaders Caroline Roberts & Tina Mortimer, and the voices of Val Anderson, Soprano, Evelyn Mitchell, Mezzo, and John Oliver, Baritone with accompanist Martin Dack. There was a special guest appearance by flautist Dr. Michael Cave, Cardiologist at the University Hospital of North Durham, accompanied also by Martin Dack.
The volunteer work of Dr. Cave with the British Heart Foundation was rewarded with a donation from the Rotary Club.
The audience did not need any encouragement to raise the roof with Last Night of the Proms favourites.
President Terry said:
“I am pleased to announce that, with the support our members, friends and supporters who attended the concert and the Lloyds Banking Group, and other very generous donations plus the revenue from ticket sales we will be donating in excess of £1300.00 to each of the charities. “To me, this is what Rotary is all about, raising money for wonderful causes and having a great time doing it.”
