Melodies fundraiser is mu­sic to hos­pi­tals’ ears

Harefield Gazette - - NEWS -

SINGING group The Melod­ics per­formed a con­cert in Hayes to raise money for leukaemia suf­fer­ers.

The group en­ter­tained mem­bers of the Nashville Ladies Club at St Ni­cholas Church Hall on Novem­ber 24.

For the past 13 years they have been rais­ing money for peo­ple with leukaemia af­ter one of their mem­bers lost a two-year-old daugh­ter to the ill­ness.

The singers have per­formed 164 con­certs and shows across Mid­dle­sex and £13,000 so far.

Money has been sent to Great Or­mond Street, Hilling­don Child­hood Can­cer Sup­port Group, Birm­ing­ham Hos­pi­tal and, in re­cent years, to Hilling­don Hos­pi­tal’s Peter Pan Ward.

Ann Gaines, pi­anist and or­gan­iser at the group, thanked the singers for vol­un­teer­ing their time and the AP Tay­lor Trust Fund for do­nat­ing money to cover the costs of print­ing pro­grammes and pur­chas­ing mu­sic.
