LOVE was in the air at Sheffield Cathedral when a special Valentine’s concert was performed to raise cash for a leading city cancer charity.

The event was organised to celebrate the most romantic day of the year and to raise vital funds for the Weston Park Hospital Cancer Charity.

Crowds turned out for the show on Sunday afternoon which featured performances from the Stannington Brass Band and Bolsterstone Male Voice Choir.

There was also a special guest appearance from John Reilly, the voice of Sheffield favourites Boy on a Dolphin and Acoustic Angels, who performed with pianist Lewis Nitikman.

It was organised after a Christmas concert at the same venue had to be cancelled in December because of the bad weather.

Rachel Thorpe, director of Weston Park Hospital Cancer Charity, said: “It was lovely that so many people enjoyed such a fabulous afternoon out and we are so grateful to everyone involved, the concert organisers, the musicians, and of course the audience.

“We were devastated when the planned Christmas Concert was cancelled because of the snow. We rely heavily on events like this to help us fund cancer research and improve cancer treatments and care here at Weston Park and it is great that our supporters refused to let the dreadful British weather interfere!”
