A charity classical music concert staged by staff at Hinchingbrooke and Peterborough City Hospitals has raised £1,600 for the Hunts Community Cancer Network.

The concert, staged at Hinchingbrooke Performing Arts Centre on 9 March, was attended by an audience of approximately 200 people and featured seven clinicians from the Trust who all happen to have both medical and musical talents.

The event was arranged by Hinchingbrooke Hospital consultant surgeon Adrian Harris, who also performed a piano concerto as the highlight of the evening, supported by a string ensemble from the renowned Bernardi Music Group.

Adrian said: "I wanted to reflect the link between medicine and music as we have some very talented staff who in their spare time enjoy playing music to a very high standard. I was very pleased with the support we received on the night, and would like to thank all who bought tickets. It was great to raise money for such worthy causes.”

Money raised on the night was split between Hunts Community Cancer Network and Classic FM’s music charity ‘Global’s Make Some Noise’.  

Karen Moseley, lead community specialist cancer nurse, said: “We were thrilled to receive this donation on the back of this wonderful event. The money raised will be put towards supporting our growing programme of activities for patients, including yoga and other forms of exercise classes, plus a new group for male patients.”
