Bristol Symphony raised £5,241.00 in support of the charity
Over this last year, Bristol Symphony Orchestra raised £5,241 in support of St Peter's Hospice Room to Care Appeal. Through a series of events the Orchestra found various ways to raise funds, as well as help create an awareness of the appeal. In January 2018 the players gave up alcohol for a month in a sponsored Lose the Booze campaign, raising £1,135 In June the Orchestra offered up it’s Conductor, William Goodchild, as an auction lot at the St Peter's Hospice Ruby Dinner (hosted by Joanna Lumely): bidding ended at £600 in exchange for a conducting master class. The year ended with a major fundraiser ‘Night at The Opera’ concert at Clifton Cathedral. Through a combination of ticket and programme sales, retiring collection and a grand raffle, (with thanks to Longborough Festival Opera for the donated prize), the Orchestra was able to raise a further £2,227. Therefore making the total raise of £5,241 for the charity.
The Orchestra has had a fun year working with St Peter’s Hospice and is proud to have been able to help the charity.
