The Nightingales, choir for Mid Cheshire Hospitals Trust, in aid of scanner appeal

Christmas concerts held by a hospital choir have helped to raise vital funds for the local MRI Scanner Appeal.

The Nightingales, choir of the Mid Cheshire Hospitals Trust, performed two Carol Concerts in support of the appeal.

The first concert took place with help from Shavington Academy pupils who performed carols on brass, wind and string instruments to Leighton Hospital’s patients, visitors and staff.

The performance was held to raise funds for Leighton Hospital’s Macmillan Cancer Unit and the Scanner Appeal and raised £90 which will be split equally between the charities.

The Nightingales (pictured, above) performed a second concert at the Post Graduate Medical Centre at Leighton Hospital.

Around 30 people attended, including Mid Cheshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust staff and members of the local community.

It raised more than £220 towards the MRI Scanner Appeal.

Laura Riddle, charity manager for Mid Cheshire Hospitals Charity, said: “I’d really like to give a huge thank you to The Nightingales for giving up their time to perform on two consecutive days to help raise money for the charities.

“And another big thank you to Mr Clark and the pupils from Shavington Academy who got involved to support us.

“It was a great afternoon and a lot of fun.

“It was a delight to receive support from such talented local children.”

Mid Cheshire Hospitals Charity launched its £1 million MRI Scanner Appeal in March last year to provide a second scanner at Leighton Hospital.
