Talented singers helped to raise money to support patients at George Eliot Hospital at a charity night at Collycroft Working Men’s Club organised by the Teresa Noon Trust.
During the evening the Trust handed over £11,120.00 pounds to Dorothea Oncology Nurse, Helen Hall following successful fundraising events throughout the year. The talent night also raised another £1,120.
Over 15 singers took part in the ‘Q Factor’ event before the audience chose the eventual winner Phil Whittaker, after three hard fought rounds of terrific talent. Local boy band ‘Have This’ also supported the event with a sterling performance during the interval.
Ward Manager, Kay Fox said: “We would like to thank the Teresa Noon Trust for their incredible charity fundraising and fantastic donations to our service.
“The money is going to be used to purchase specialist treatment chairs for patients who visit our oncology unit.”
The Q factor fundraiser was organized by QS Karaoke (Bill and Sue Earp) with support from the team of volunteers who make these charity nights such a success.The Landlady and Landlord of the Old Chequers Inn in Bulkington also supported the latest donation by raising over £1000.
The Teresa Noon Trust was originally set up in memory of dedicated fundraiser Teresa Noon, who sadly passed away last year.
Teresa’s husband, Trevor Noon, Bill and Sue Earp, Tracey and Tony Davies and their friends had already organised several successful musical nights to help buy valuable equipment for the Oncology unit at the George Eliot Hospital.
The group have already organised their next show which is being held on March 24th 2018 at the Saunders Club, Bedworth. The event will feature professional singer Jackie Baker, Have This and local vocalist Ian Lloyd.
