Cathedral Carol Concert a huge sucess

On the 2nd December over 400 people descended on the beautiful Manchester Cathedral to celebrate Christmas whilst raising money for Childhood Cancer Research.

After receiving gift bags from Housing Units, plus mulled wine and mice pies – the audience where treated to a range of festive songs from local primary schools including Springfield, St Joseph’s RC, Willow Tree and St Luke’s! They even got the opportunity to join in a range of carols, and dance along to songs from Sale Brass Band.

Amongst the audience was Salford’s Ceremonial Mayor, Charlie McIntyre and staff members from housing Units.

With sponsorship from Housing Units and kind donations from Kingsland Drinks, ASDA Eastlands, Co-Op Angel Street and Sainbury’s Urmston, the evening raised the highest amount to date – an incredible £2444. That’s enough to fund over 240 hours of vital research.

Fundraising Manager Alison England commented:

This event was a great way to kick start the festive season and having the concert in the stunning Manchester Cathedral again is a delight! The children were fantastic and really entertained the whole audience with their Christmas songs! Myself and the whole team at Kidscan are so grateful to everyone who has supported this event from the schools staff, parents, carers, Sale brass band, our sponsors and our wonderful choir leader Margaret Curzon who has worked her magic with the choirs. Thank you to everyone who attended as they have made such a difference to our charity.

We are now looking forward to welcoming back Willow Tree primary School Choir on Wed 4th Dec  to the Marks & Spencer’s Outlet at The Lowry Salford for an afternoon of festive favourites!
