Choral evening raises £3,000 for research
AN estimated £3,000 has been raised for stem cell research which could help those diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease in the future.
The cash was raised by a sold-out choral evening organised by David Burt, of Bridgend Male Choir, following his diagnosis with the progressive neurological condition.
The choir joined forces with the Bridgend group of Parkinson’s UK for the concert at the Bethlehem Church Life Centre in Cefn Cribwr.
The choir, with Stephanie Bailey conducting and Stewart Roberts accompanying, performed along with Maesteg soprano Rhian Hughes and the Bethlehem Church Life Centre’s own Garage Gospel Choir.
David also received overwhelming support from businesses with sponsorship.
