Hitting the high notes for our hospice

A group of young Doncaster singers have hit the high notes to raise £400 for our hospice.

The Sharon Richards Singers, who are based at the Holmescarr Centre, Rossington, put on a concert last year and have now handed over the cash to our St John’s Hospice at Balby.

Sharon Richards, who runs the group, which has around 45 members, said: “Quite a few of our choir members have had close family members at the hospice so we thought raising money for this cause was very apt. Raising this money was quite personal for some of the members.”

Sharon, whose past pupils include Louis Tomlinson of One Direction fame, will be putting on a concert on October 22 at Parklands, Wheatley Hall Road, Doncaster, where they will be raising money for Guide Dogs for the Blind.

Lindsey Richards, of our St John’s Hospice, said: “I want to thank Sharon and her fantastic singers for this donation. It’s a brilliant amount which will be invested into patient care.”
