SUMMER CHARITY CHORAL EVENT

July 12, 2024

Charity choral event supporting Anne Garry’s Palliative Care Trust in Malawi

Paul Blenkiron and the fabulous Celebration Singers have kindly offered their time to come and sing for us.

Hopefully the sun will be shining and we will start in the garden with a song and a welcome bit of fizz before sitting down inside to enjoy some more singing.
After the entertainment – canapes will be served alongside wines from the York Medical Society Wine Club cellars.
Please do join us.   The minimum donation is £25 per person to cover the refreshments and allow a worthwhile donation to help Anne with her work.

Anne Garry’s Palliative Care Trust

Many will remember Anne Garry who worked in York Hospital as a consultant for care of the dying.   We were all very grateful to her for her input or full care of some of our patients.

Anne has since retired and is now a volunteer consultant in Queen Elizabeth’s Central Hospital in Blantyre, Malawi.   She was very saddened on arrival to see people dying with no pain relief, food or any nutrition as there is no welfare available to them.

The clinic, Tiyanje, is an adult and paediatric palliative care service.  Anne has managed intermittently to obtain medication to ease the suffering of the dying.   The palliative care trust is for the patients in the clinic.

Rather than send the money to the general Malawi charities we have identified a way to get money to her to spend on these patients through this trust.

Anne will spend the money that we raise on medication, particularly pain relief, as well as some nutrition and a much-needed social worker and driver.    It will also go towards funding a paediatric palliative care nurse.

The evening will start with pre-concert drinks in the garden from 7pm

Following the concert – canapes will be served accompanied with wines from the York Medical Society Wine Club Cellars

Seated tickets and canapes – minimum donation of £25 per person

Should you wish to donate more – we would be happy to accept the payment and pass it to the charity on your behal
