The Countess of Wessex visited Guildford Cathedral on Saturday April 14 for a concert by Wokings Epworth Choir in aid of local charity Transform Housing & Support.
Her Royal Highness, who is the royal patron of the charity, was welcomed by The Lord-Lieutenant of Surrey Dame Sarah Goad and the Mayor of Guildford Cllr Terence Patrick, and introduced the charitys supporters at a pre-concert reception in the Cathedral Refectory.
She was then escorted to the Cathedral for a performance of Haydn: The Creation by the Epworth Choir, accompanied by The Salomon Orchestra. The concert was conducted by Matthew Willis and featured soloists Helena Dix, Sam Furness and Grant Doyle.
The concert ended with a charity collection, which raised more than 2,000 for Transform Housing & Support, which is celebrating its 40th anniversary in 2012.
Transform is holding several events throughout 2012 to celebrate its birthday year, including a dinner at Loseley Park near Guildford on Wednesday July 4 and a Golf Day on Friday September 21.
