EMG Symphony Orchestra donates £500 to Exeter Leukaemia Fund - A Message from Ellen Stratton

EMG Symphony Orchestra’s Chair, Rachel Wieck, with trumpeter Tony Hindley, Britten narrator Alistair Ganley and oboist Kate Osborne, presents Jordan Anderton of Exeter Leukaemia Fund (ELF) with a cheque for £500 following the Orchestra’s November concert at the Great Hall. 

EMGSO is delighted to be able to make this additional donation to ELF, thanks to strong ticket sales for the November concert.  This donation, combined with the bucket collection taken by the charity at the end of the concert brings the total raised for ELF from this event to over £1,000.  EMGSO Chair Rachel Wieck said “EMG is delighted that the ticket sales for this concert have enabled us to contribute additional funds to such a worthwhile local charity.  We hope that ticket sales for our forthcoming concerts will enable us to make similar donations to our partner charities in the future”.

EMG Symphony Orchestra’s next concert will take place on Saturday 11 April in Exeter Cathedral.  For more information about this event and to buy tickets, please go to The Orchestra Website.
