Festive event to raise funds for Leicester Children’s Hospital Appeal

The East Midlands is the only region in England without a dedicated children’s hospital and the children’s services at Leicester’s Hospitals are among the busiest in the country.

That’s why Leicester Hospitals Charity launched Leicester Children’s Hospital Appeal in July this year.

The aim is to raise £7.5m in order to move and transform the current children’s services and create a state-of-the-art children’s hospital based at the Leicester Royal Infirmary.

To date the Leicester Children’s Hospital Appeal has raised £4.1m of its intended target with its next money raising event planned to bring Christmas cheer.

On Wednesday 11th December a Christmas Carol Concert will be held from 7.00-9.00pm at The Church of St James The Greater in Leicester. The event features the Kibworth Ladies Choir, Highs and Lows Leicester Children’s Diabetes Choir, 3M Quartet and more.

Local property expert Andrew Granger & Co Ltd has supported the Christmas Carol Concert by donating £500 to cover the cost of the drink included with each ticket sold.

Andrew Granger said: “We were only too happy to donate towards this event. Christmas is a very poignant time of year and what a lovely opportunity to get in the festive spirit whilst raising money for such a good cause at the same time.

“The Leicester Children’s Hospital Appeal has done remarkably well with the amount of money it has raised so far and we hope that people continue to support their plans for the children’s hospital.”

Leicester Hospitals Charity’s Head of Fundraising, Gareth Aston, thanks Andrew Granger & Co for their donation.

“We’re delighted to be kicking off the Christmas period with our first ever Carol Concert in aid of our Leicester Children’s Hospital Appeal,” says Gareth.

“It’ll be a terrific event supporting a fantastic cause and we’re so grateful to have the support of Andrew Granger & Co who’ve kindly donated some festive cheer for all who attend.”

Tickets for the event can be purchased by visiting dothemproud.com or by calling 0116 258 8709. Alternatively, tickets can be purchased by visiting the Charity Hub, Balmoral Building, Leicester Royal Infirmary or the Charity Office, Belgrave House, Leicester General Hospital.
