They make music for St Vincent's palliative care ward

BLUE and White Auxiliary is hoping for large crowds at its coming Musical Afternoon that will raise funds for the Palliative Care Ward at St Vincent's Hospital.

The 26-year-old auxiliary of 21 members will host the fundraiser at the Salvation Army Citadel, Goonellabah, next Saturday, October 25.

Assistant secretary Rosemary Davis said the event will feature "...piano students of Lisa Pirlo and singing students of Pauline Walsh as well as a clarinettist and trumpeter".

An afternoon tea will follow.

"We haven't held a Musical Afternoon in a long while, will be the first in many years," Mrs Davis said.

"The more people who come along, the more we can raise."

The auxiliary regularly hosts fundraising events to help fund equipment at the hospital.

Aged from 10 to adult, the performers will explore a gamut of styles, from classical to musical theatre, jazz and pop.

Tickets cost $10 for adults, $5 for high school students and $2 for primary school students.

Doors open at 2pm.
