A Close Shave!

Henry Danson decided to raise money for hospital related charities by shaving his head!  Here he (before shaving) with a fantastic £350 raised.  Derby Hospitals Choir was honoured to be one of the three selected charities.  The picture shows Henry (centre) and our Chairman Louise on his right as one of the recipients.

The 2016 Charity – Hospital Tandem Buggy

This year we are raising money for a Hospital tandem Buggy!
You may have seen the electric buggies that ferry the less mobile around the hospital operated by the Friends of Derby Hospital, but these are restricted in where they can go because of their size. it is now possible to buy a two seat narrow electric vehicle that can ferry one person (plus driver) to many more locations in the hospital, for outpatients or less mobile visitors. Jackie Marriott is  shown giving us a talk about the “Tandem Buggies”.

Here is a photo of the much loved, late Charles Green, as one of the Volunteers that drive the current buggies.

Florence Nightingale Memorial Service – 2016

… went well as always, with more sunshine that forecast! This year 50 of us returned to Derby Cathedral, with several hundred dignitaries, nurses and friends, to remember the Lady with the Lamp, and the plaque dedicated to her on the North Wall.
The retro-choir is a lovely place to sing and this year we were accompanied by the recently appointed Cathedral organist – Hugh Morris. Click on these links to hear us sing…
