ATADesigns Donates Plates for Macmillan’s Guards’ Chapel Christmas Concert
During the summer this year we were approached by Macmillan Cancer Support who asked if we would consider supporting them and their up and coming concert, the Guards’ Chapel Christmas Concert to be held on 5th December 2013. It’s a fundraising evening and we will be donating a set of our bone-china side-plates. Of course we said “yes it’s our pleasure”. Recently, we sadly lost both our parents to cancer, and our dear sister some years ago, and we are still feeling the pain of loss. Macmillan Cancer Support has done so much for us, it’s a charity very close to our hearts.
About The Guards’ Chapel Christmas Concert
The Guards’ Chapel Christmas Concert is one of Macmillan’s flagship special events offering guests an evening of exquisite performances from internationally acclaimed artists alongside celebrity readings and congregational carols. On Thursday 5th December 2013 at 7pm, 700 guests will join Macmillan once again, in the stunning surroundings of the Guards Chapel, Wellington Barracks for this prestigious evening.
Now in its 26th year the concert maintains its reputation as the first must attend event in the Christmas calendar. Kick off your festive season with performances from internationally acclaimed artists and beautiful readings from a wealth of celebrities. Every year guests join the Royal Military Choir in traditional carols all of which are skilfully hosted by Martyn Lewis CBE, Vice President of Macmillan Cancer Support. Following the concert guests have the unique opportunity to enjoy champagne and canapés within the Officers’ Mess.
This year Macmillan are joined by 3 outstanding artists; tenor Mark Padmore, pianist Tamara Stefanovich and violinist Charlie Siem along with players from the London Contemporary Orchestra. Macmillan hope to once again raise in excess of £120,000 for people affected by cancer, and ensure no one faces cancer alone.
