Children’s choir help raise money for sick patients

Ruckleigh’s Children’s Choir in Solihull held a performance this week to help raise much needed funds for the Friends of Solihull Hospital (FOSH) appeal.

The choir performed in front of visitors and patients at Solihull Hospital, raising over £300 supporting Friends of Solihull Hospital (FOSH)’s campaign to buy life saving equipment for the Hospital’s Day Surgery unit. This laparoscopic camera stacking system will see patients benefitting from smaller operating wounds, less invasive surgery with a faster recovery period.

Head of Music at Ruckleigh School: “We are very proud at Ruckleigh School to be supporting our local hospital, we recognise the hospital is vital part of our community and that FOSH are doing an excellent job in raising money for this important piece of equipment needed by our local Hospital."

Amanda Marnock, director of operations for ambulatory care said; “This new piece of equipment will be invaluable to the Trust and will benefit many patients as it can be used in a number of different procedures.”

Liz Steventon, friends of Solihull Hospital secretary, said: “We have been raising funds to support Solihull Hospital since 1953 and in that time have raised more than £600,000. When this opportunity came to support such a huge cause we were delighted.”

The group will be holding several events throughout the year. If you would like to make a donation or volunteer, call Liz on 07909912525 or liz@steventon.net.
