Ely Cathedral Girls’ Choir’s Charity Concert raised £400 for the Pulmonary Hypertension Association.

People of all ages came together inside Ely Cathedral for the event on May 25th, which featured solo songs and duets by Mozart, Grieg, Pergolesi, Britten, Abba, Tom Lehrer, and Lakme’s famous Flower Duet, as well as a special new arrangement of O Happy Day.

The concert was originally going to be held in the courtyard at Etheldreda House but heavy rain forced it to take place inside in the cathedral’s South Transept. The concert was followed by a reception in the Canonry where members of the audience were able to enjoy drinks, nibbles and a cake sale.

The Pulmonary Hypertension Association (PHA UK) is the only charity in the UK dedicated to people with the rare disease, pulmonary hypertension (PH).

Set up in 2000, PHA UK has grown to a membership of over 3,500. The PH community is like no other – a unique group of people committed to supporting each other and raising awareness of this serious condition in the hope of one day, finding a cure.
