Christmas concert is music to the ears of hospice

We held our third annual Light up a Life Christmas Concert on the evening of Sunday 26th November in the Grand Hall in Kilmarnock.  It was a special evening with memorable performances from Forehill Primary School in Ayr, St Joseph’s Academy band “Paypoint” from Kilmarnock, Isle of Cumbrae RBLS Pipe Band, Olive Lindsay, Ron Swanson, Ayr Salvation Army Band and A Choired Taste.  The hospice were also delighted to welcome Tilly Moore and her family who have kindly supported this year’s Light up a Life appeal in loving memory of Tilly’s son, John who was cared for in the hospice last year. 

Funds are still coming in however at present the concert has raised £2,500 for the hospice.

Lyn Bateman, Senior Fundraising Officer at the Ayrshire Hospice said “Our third annual concert was another special night and a wonderful opportunity for everyone to come together as a community. We are so fortunate that our hospice is so well supported particularly at Christmas time.”

We wish to thank the Co-op Funeralcare for their generous donation to the concert, The Cook School Scotland for their donation of delicious mince pies for all of the guests who attended and Garrocher Tree Farm for their donation of a Christmas tree. We would also like to extend a final thank you to all those who attended, volunteered and supported the event - thank you for making today matter!
