A community orchestra will support a hospice charity at its next concert.

Richmondshire Orchestra will perform "Vive les Olympiques!" in aid of Herriot Hospice Homecare on Sunday, July 14 at The Garden Rooms, Tennants, Leyburn.

The orchestra is pledging a donation from the proceeds of tickets sales, as well as providing a platform to donate directly to Herriot Hospice at the concert.

Herriot Hospice supports families in Hambleton and Richmondshire living with terminal illness and bereavement, and is developing a new in-patient hospice at the former Lambert Memorial Hospital in Thirsk.

Rebecca Robertson, publicity officer for Richmondshire Orchestra, said: “We’re delighted to be able to support Herriot Hospice Homecare’s crucial role in our local community. They support those living with terminal illness and their carers through the most difficult time and beyond.”

The concert, "Vive les Olympiques," which will begin at 3pm, takes inspiration from the 2024 Olympics in Paris, 100 years after the city hosted the Games for the first time.

“With the proximity of the concert to the start of the 2024 Paris Olympics, and the concert day falling on the French anniversary of Bastille Day, I could not help but seek a link to the former event,” said Richmondshire Orchestra’s principal conductor Martin Budgett.

“Paris previously held the Games in 1924, so the music, to be performed by local musicians of all ages, has been chosen to represent the countries that finished in the top seven in the 1924 medals table.”

Tickets are £12 and free for 16s and under, and are available now, via www.tennantsgardenrooms.com or call 01969 621146.
