My favourite charity is Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham. The charity provides support for patients and their families during difficult times. In April 2016 I gave two recitals at St Mark's Church, Worsley - on piano and organ - and in May I completed the Manchester 10k run, along with my son-in-law Michael and about 30,000 other runners.

The total raised so far is £2,300 - thank you to everyone who has supported me. I am hoping to complete the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge next year for my next fundraising effort.  

In May 2016 over 70 singers came to sing Vivaldi’s Gloria from scratch in St Mark’s Church,Worsley to raise over £900 for the Prevent Breast Cancer Charity in Manchester.

Thanks to everyone who sang and helped on the day!
