The organisers of a popular concert “A Gift for our Hospice” have confirmed their next musical spectacular will be on Tuesday 29th January. The event, that will raise funds for Cornish healthcare charity Cornwall Hospice Care, will start at 7.15pm in St Johns Methodist Church, Bodmin Road, St Austell.


Co-organiser David Hendry says; “We were overwhelmed with so much positive feedback after last year’s fundraiser for Mount Edgcumbe Hospice. It was so popular we felt compelled to do another one. This is rapidly becoming an integral part of the St Austell music scene. This year we have a theme of ‘music from the shows’. We are going to fill the Church with magnificent musical melodies that everyone knows and loves.”

Matt Davies, also a co-organiser, added; “We are so very grateful to our friends at St Johns Methodist Church for allowing us to use the premises and to some of their congregation who, on the night, will organise refreshments. Without their help, we just couldn’t do it. This fantastic building lends itself to an amazing theatre and with the professional sound and lighting we use this should give the event a very special atmosphere.”

The line-up of musical guests includes soloists, Rachel Carter and Jonathon Tucker, the ever-popular Restormel Concert Band and the sensational mixed choir Note-Ability. David Hendry again; “I must thank MD Sound and Audio, The Financial Advice Centre and The Cornwall Channel for supporting the event, making sure that every penny taken on the night will go directly to the specialist care provided to terminally ill patients and their families, carers and friends at Mount Edgcumbe Hospice.”

Jane Appleton is a Community Fundraiser for Cornwall Hospice Care: “We’re delighted that this wonderful concert is happening once again and in support of our charity. I’d like to thank all those taking part for their ongoing support and want those who go along on the night to know that the money raised will help us to make a difference to families facing terminal illness here in Cornwall.”

Tickets are £5 and will be available on the door on the night.
