26 Hour Pianothon

On Saturday 21st May Chris Ball completed his Pianothon!

Chris played 26 hours of beautiful piano music over the course of the week, from his home and from Northfield House. He went through the alphabet of his music, some favourites included Gilbert and Sullivan, George Gershwin and the Beatles.

The event was live streamed on the internet and members of the public came into Northfield house to enjoy the music, sing along and have some lovely cream teas and Victoria sponge made by Jackie.

Christine Briggs was in attendance to mark the end of the Pianothon, to express our gratitude and present Chris with a glass of bubbly!
Chris has been raising money for both Somerset Sight and Retina UK, the running total so far is just over £700.00, we would love to get him up to £1000.00!
