Ripon Cathedral carol concert raises thousands for new cancer centre

Published at 9:50am 19th December 2017.

The Macmillan Christmas Carol Concert by Candelight at Ripon Cathedral has raised more than £35,000 for a new cancer centre in Northallerton.

It will be based at the Friarage Hospital and provide a modern, state-of-the-art facility for patients, carers and families.

The building, which is set to be completed next summer, will be called the Sir Robert Ogden Macmillan Centre, after the North-Yorkshire based philanthropist who is jointly funding the project with Macmillan.

Choir singers from Aysgarth School and Queen Mary's School took part in the carol concert, alongside professional musicians and special guest speakers including ITV Racing's Ed Chamberlain and Carnegie Medal nominee Piers Torday.
