|Tobias Tops £32,000 For Trinity
Putney knitting concert donations adds a further £900
On Sunday night the final Putney Knitting Concert took place place with Schubert's String Quintet in C major in a packed All Saint's Church on Putney Common.
Organiser Robert Bridge introduced the Bernadel Quartet with Rebecca Wise on the cello. Robert informed the audience that the retiring collection would go to Trinity Hospice via the Tobias Davey fundraising page. Geoff Davey, who passed away earlier this month following a seven month battle with cancer, was a regular attendee at the knitting concerts and an enthusiastic member of the 1882 Singers.
The concert was a great success raising £900 which which was added to the fund. Looking around the congregation, you could observe members with knitting, crochet, embroidery, books, kindles or simply just sitting back and enjoying the sublime sound. The end came too soon and the musicians received great applause.
9 year old Tobias set out to raise £3000 through a 5k Colour Run, in Wembley Park on 1st June, raising funds for the hospice where his father was an in-patient.
Tobias said: &ldJuly 2, 2014y dad how much I love him. They have been looking after my dad, who has terminal cancer. The nurses and doctors there are fantastic - so kind and patient.”
