Christmas Carol Concert raises funds for the University of Leicester British Heart Foundation Cardiovascular Research Centre

Christmas carollers are invited to attend a concert to raise money for heart research on today at 7.30pm at the Wigston Magna Methodist Church in Leicester.

Money raised from the Magna Music Makers Christmas Concert will be going to the University of Leicester British Heart Foundation Cardiovascular Research Centre (CRC), which provides world leading academics and researchers with state-of-the-art equipment and facilities to enable cutting-edge research into the causes and new treatments for many of the common cardiovascular diseases

The Magna Music Makers choir consists of a group of women who have a passion for singing and chose to support the Centre after reading about the facility and its life saving research. 

Professor Alison Goodall (pictured) from the University of Leicester’s Department of Cardiovascular Sciences said: "Funds raised by local groups and individuals have been vital in allowing us to buy new equipment for the Cardiovascular Research Centre to help us carry out our research in Leicester into heart disease. This money has made a huge difference to the quality of the work and the researchers really appreciate this support."

If you want to join the festivities then tickets can be bought for £7 from Ann Hemmings on 0116 288 1939 or Elsie Rawson-Dean on 0116 286 7001 or they can be bought at the door.
