Music-lovers of all ages have been invited to a summer concert packed with performances taking place at West Suffolk Hospital.
The music-filled afternoon has been arranged by the chaplaincy team to celebrate the completion of a refurbishment project which has restored the chapel’s baby grand piano to its former glory. The work has been generously funded by the Music Sales Charitable Trust, which is based in Bury St Edmunds.
The team also hope that anyone who with a few hours to spare will come along to the event, taking place on Saturday, June 21 and find out more about signing up as a volunteer.
Ian Howells, lead chaplain at the hospital, said: “We are incredibly grateful to the Music Sales Group, who so generously funded the repair work to the baby grand, which was donated to the hospital last year.
“We are now hoping as many people as possible will come along to our open afternoon summer concert and hear the piano in action while also enjoying some other musical treats.
“The concert will also be a perfect opportunity for people to find out more about the valuable role our team of 60 volunteers play across the hospital in providing spiritual
support and companionship to patients.”
The concert takes place in the hospital chapel between 2pm and 5pm. Everyone is welcome to drop in and enjoy the music, while homemade cakes and other refreshments will also be provided.
Anyone who is interested in becoming a volunteer and cannot attend the event can contact the department on 01284 713486 for more information.
