Fund-raising event for Operation Elliot

Operation Elliot

The Poole Passion will be supporting a fantastic classical event on Valentines evening, later this week in order to raise money for a very worthy cause, Operation Elliot.

Elliot is a 6 year old boy with cerebral palsy and a severe haemophilia A. He’s just like any other six year old in many ways – he wants to be a pilot at the moment but the next best thing would be to be a pirate. Having cerebral palsy means that he can’t do all of the things that his friends and siblings do and he gets understandably frustrated as a result.

He has recently been assessed by a specialist team at Great Ormond Street Hospital and is considered to be a strong candidate for a potentially life changing operation called a Selective Dorsal Rhizotomy. This is a huge spinal procedure which aims to give him much more freedom of movement. The biggest challenge is raising the funds of £60,000 for the operation and a much needed course of physiotherapy after.

This where you come in. We are pleased to invite you to one of the most prestigious concerts in Parkstone this year, with all funds raised going towards Elliot’s life-changing operation.

We are feeling very blessed that internationally recognised musician, Luka Gadeliya (organist) and Chritina Eshba (soprano) are granting us of their magical presence for this special concert.

To top off this great line-up, St Peter’s Parkstone Parish Choir will be joining them along with the actors of Poole Passion who have a few surprises up their sleeves to keep you entertained! What more could you wish for on a Valentine’s evening?

Keep your Valentine entertained with music and drama, and it’s all for a great cause!

Date: Friday 14th of February

Time: 19.00

Location: St. Peter’s Church, Church Road, Parkstone, Poole, BH14 0NN
Come along and enjoy the entertainment. Free entry. Donations welcomed!
