CORONATION STREET star William Roache MBE acted as Master of Ceremonies at Nightingale House Hospice’s Christmas Concert at Chester Cathedral.
The event, which was attended by more than 800 people, raised more than £11,000 for the hospice.
Guests were treated to a duet from Ann Atkinson, artistic director of the Froncysyllte Male Voice Choir and international tenor Aled Wyn Davies and musical arrangements by Phoenix Brass, a quintet based in Manchester. The King’s School’s Schola Cantorum also sang.
Caroline Siddall, income generation manager of the hospice, said: “We are extremely grateful to all the artists who made this event so successful, particularly to The Fron Choir and William Roache. This is the second year that The Fron has supported us in this way and now that the choir has achieved such success in the charts with its best-selling albums, we can only thank the choir members once again for their continued support. We would also like to thank the volunteers who helped make this event run smoothly and to staff at Chester Cathedral.”
Nightingale House Hospice in Wrexham provides specialist care services, free-of-charge, to patients and their families.
