A charity musical evening was held at Preston Minster on Saturday 13th June at 7pm. The event was held to raise funds for 3 charities – EDN (Eating Disorder Network) Disabled Cricket and CRY (Cardiac Risk in the Young).
Councillor Christine Abram and Ruth Lowe organised the function with a splendid raffle and auction and serving tea and coffee with homemade cakes. Classical star and broadcaster Jon Christos got the choirs together for this event.
We were treated to youngsters from Ashbridge Independent School Choir and Highfield Priory Choir as well as the Company Voyces from the Minster. The Finale was a duet from Jon Christos and Jenny Williams who rounded off a splendid evening of musical talent.
The whole evening was a great success and we raised around £1600 in profit for our charities. Thanks must go to Turners of Grimsargh who sponsored our evening and to LAT Creative who designed and printed our posters, tickets and programmes.
I continue to be thankful for the generosity of people whenever we hold our fund raising events and will continue to support CRY.
