Band night hits high note for hospice

A charity band night which saw legal, banking and accounting professionals perform live for colleagues, family and friends raised an amazing £1,000 for St Catherine’s.

Hospice trustee John Chesworth, Executive Chairman at Harrison Drury solicitors, was among the musicians who performed on the night – playing rhythm guitar with the Harrison Fury band.

The event – held at the Roper Hall in Preston in November – also welcomed Ryan Clifton, an acoustic guitarist who works at Moore and Smalley chartered accountants, and The Orange Project, a rock group made up of staff from the Royal Bank of Scotland.

More than 120 guests turned out to show their support.

John said: “It was great fun and there was an incredible atmosphere on the night.

“Not only was it a chance for colleagues, associates, family and friends to come together to enjoy some live music and let their hair down, it also raised a fantastic total to support the work of the hospice.

“The care St Catherine’s provides to local families is so important. We’re extremely proud to have made a worthwhile contribution to this work, helping patients facing conditions like cancer, motor neurone disease and heart failure to have a good quality of life.

“We’d like to say a huge thank you to everyone involved for their generosity and support in making the event a success.”
