A choir hit the right note as it raised cash for charity.

Backworth Male Voice Choir held a fundraising concert for the Children’s Heart Unit Fund (CHUF) in memory of Pat Higgins, whose grandson Patrick underwent a heart transplant at the age of two at the Freeman Hospital.

During his intensive recovery period in the Children’s Heart Unit, Patrick and his parents received considerable support from CHUF.

Patrick, now nine, is fit and well.

CHUF’S aim is to raise money to buy equipment, facilities, aftercare and research for the Children’s Heart Unit and the Paediatric Intensive Care Unit.

After the cheque presentation, members of the choir were shown CHUF’s work on the wards.
