Virtual Christmas Concert

The concert, produced by the amazing Emily Bollon of Motivation by Music, involving Parkingsong Voices, first shown live on YouTube on 12th December, was a great success. By the end of the night, more than £3,600 had been raised for Parkinson’s UK. One week later the total amount donated had risen to £4,765.
