Macmillan Cancer Care is a wonderful charity dedicated to providing professional and compassionate nursing both in hospital and at home to patients with a serious Cancer illness.
Macmillan Nursing is charity funded and the incredible care they provided is supported by a wide range of organisations and individuals who give their time and talents to raise vital funds.
A recent fund-raising evening, which involved many talents and raised over £1,000 for Macmillan, was organised by Kevin Cleary of Ocean Harmony, as a thank you to Macmillan Cancer Care for supporting his wife Lesley through her Cancer illness.
Totton College generously donated the excellent facilities at the Hanger Farm Arts Centre to stage an enjoyable evening concert involving many performers.
Ocean Harmony, the Southampton based chorus, provided an up-beat opening to the concert. Alison Vincent and Paul Webb from the Southampton Operatic Society accompanied by Hilary Green, entertained with songs from popular operas, followed by delightful music from the Chinese Arts Association Musical Quartet. Geoff Shepherd and Tori, guitar and vocalist, provided a lively close to the first half of the concert.
Ocean Harmony opened the second half followed by the very talented Brian Price, on keyboard, guitar and vocalist. Liam White then closed the concert with his varied and expert repertoire of songs with keyboard accompaniment.
