A fundraising concert for Nelson Trust was held at St Stephen's Church, Moreton Valence

The Nelson Trust, the Stroud-based charity that helps people overcome addiction, recently held a very popular fundraising concert in St Stephen's Church, Moreton Valence.

The evening was supported by Murrays Sales and Letting estate agents, and featured a recital by The Elmore String Quartet, an award-winning young ensemble who formed at the Royal Northern College of Music in 2017, followed by supper at nearby Woodfield House. In 2021, the quartet were delighted to be appointed as Junior Fellows in Chamber Music at the RNCM for the academic year 2021/22. The evening raised over £10,000 for the charity.

Murray’s tweeted: ‘What a glorious evening! Thank you so much  to The Nelson Trust and the phenomenal Elmore String Quartet, not to mention the wonderful crowd who made the event such a success!’

Future events for the charity can be found on their website: nelsontrust.com/upcoming-events
