The money raised will go towards research into the prevention and treatment of diseases in which specialist equipment plays a vital part. Moorfields desperately need a new, state-of-the-art anterior segment imaging machine. This piece of equipment will enable our clinicians to view detailed images of the front part of a child’s eye and drive forward a number of exciting research projects in areas such as childhood cataracts and the genetic causes of childhood blindness.
In the beautiful setting of St.Luke's Church, you will be taken on a wonderful journey through Vivaldi's glorious Four Seasons by this outstanding young talent and his orchestra.
