Phoenix raises the roof at St Hugh’s concert


We’d like to say a massive thank you to everyone who supported and came along to our concert at St Hugh’s Church in Harborough on Saturday 18 March.

We were thrilled to play to a packed church, and the concert raised a fantastic £660, to be shared between Phoenix Saxophone Orchestra, which is a registered charity, and the St Hugh’s Cygnet Fundraising Project, which aims to build a welcoming, safe space for church and community to meet.

Reverend Alison Iliffe, vicar at St Hugh’s Church, says: “The Cygnet Project is raising money to provide a larger community space within St Hugh’s Church, and hosting this concert was the perfect example of how our church building has so much more to offer, as an integral part of the local community. It was so nice to see the church full, and we’ve had some amazing feedback about the concert. It was fabulous to have Phoenix perform for us, and we do hope we’ll be able to work together again.”
