Concert in support of MS Society.

                                         

          

On Saturday  April 23rd, a large audience enjoyed a feast of  music at St Mary’s church Attenborough at a Spring Concert arranged by Notts/Derbys Hemlockstone Lions Club in aid of The Multiple Sclerosis society featuring music from a wide repertoire and performers of all ages and abilities from 7 – 70!

Those taking part included The Wollaton Singers ably conducted by Sophie Pascall and accompanied by Chris Foster. Songs included music by Elgar, songs from the shows, music by Gershwin and as a final item they were joined by St. Mary’s Junior Choir in a beautiful rendering of The 23rdt Psalm.

St. Mary’s Hand Bell Ringers provided musical interludes with a range of pieces and children from the Junior Choir provided solo items on violin, piano, flute and even a banjo – they were fantastic!

Further solo items were provided by Malcolm Bachelor on the organ and Graeme and Jill Barker on piano and violin.

As a result of the evening Notts / Derbys Hemlockstone Lions are able to donate £750 to The MS Society as part of the appeal made by Lion Anne Stafford wife of this year’s District Governor

An excellent evening demonstrating the wealth of talent in our local community and the Lions theme of Friendship and fun!

 A big thankyou to all concerned.
