Portsmouth Philharmonic has donated £150 to the rheumatology department at the QA hospital – the proceeds of a concert it staged in March.

The event on March 4th at the Church of the Resurrection in Drayton – the orchestra’s home base – featured music by Brahms, Bach and Schubert among others.

Anne White, who organised the concert, said: “The orchestra has done previous concerts on behalf of the department, but this time we decided to do the concert “in-house” as we feel it is such a good cause.”

Colin Beevor, from the Rheumatology and Fracture Liaison Service, said: “The department is delighted the orchestra was able to help us out with this concert. The money will be used to support patient self-management support programmes.”

Portsmouth Philharmonic's next concert is on Sunday December 9 at 3pm in the Church of the Resurrection at Drayton, Portsmouth in which a programme of music by Bizet and Tchaikovsky will be played.
