Celebrated musician raises £4,500 for UHB Charity!
Legendary musician, Gordon Giltrap MBE, has raised an incredible total of £4,500 for UHB Charity after generously donating sales from his album Heartsongs. Gordon underwent two bouts of major surgery in 2016 and ever since has been giving back to the hospital that treated him.
In 2018 his charity album was first released and copies flew off the shelves so quickly it sold out, raising £2,500 instantly! In the past three years profits have continued to come to UHB Charity bringing Gordon’s donation to an amazing £4,500. The money raised has allowed UHB Charity to provide equipment, resources and ‘added extras’ above and beyond what the NHS alone can provide, which has made a real and lasting difference to Birmingham’s communities.
Cathryn Worth, Fundraising Manager at UHB Charity, said: “On behalf of UHB Charity I wish to say our heartfelt thanks to Gordon for his ongoing support and dedication to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham. It has been a pleasure to work with Gordon over the years and I hope our partnership can continue for many more.”
Gordon said: "Since my personal 'journey' with the Queen Elizabeth Hospital starting in 2015,all I can say is it has been a privilege to have met some of the most remarkable people one could wish to meet. I'm proud to have been in my own small way a part of the fundraising team, and I look forward to more opportunities to offer my services as a musician to this wonderful and worthwhile charity."
