As schools all over the country begin to reopen their doors today, students from Perins School in Alresford,Hampshire, have marked their return with a stunning performance of ‘Beautiful City’ from the musical ‘Godspell’ perfromed by the Perins School Theatre.
We are thrilled that they have chosen to support The Murray Parish Trust and are fundraising to support our latest challenge to fund an iMRI Suite at Southampton Children’s Hospital.
“The ongoing support of the local community means so much to us and is vital to the charity’s ability to continue to support Southampton Hospital’s long-term goals as well as the inspirational NHS staff who’ve worked so tirelessly throughout this crisis.” – Sarah Parish
“The charity, which has successfully raised almost £5 million to date to redevelop the Children’s Emergency and Trauma Department, is currently working in partnership with Southampton Hospital to raise £5.5 million to create an intra-operative MRI Suite. An iMRI Suite will enable the hospital to undertake real time brain scans during surgery for life-threatening conditions including brain tumours, head trauma, epilepsy and hydrocephalus increasing the chance that abnormalities can be removed totally, safely and successful in a single operation.” – James Murray
The words of Stephen Schwartz’s ‘Beautiful City’ speak hopefully of collectively creating a better world, a message which the Perins students share as we emerge from these quiet, reflective times feeling positive and thankful. They dedicated the song, not only for the Perins community, but for all students across the country, the inspirational NHS staff, key workers and teachers, who’ve shown such commitment through these challenging and unprecedented times.
