A CONCERT raising money to pay for medical training for people in Burma is to be held this Saturday.

The concert at the Bromley Youth Music Trust in Southborough Lane, Bickley aims to raise money for the displaced and abused Karen people so they can learn to treat minor illnesses and injuries. The fundraiser is the brainchild of A&E consultant at the Princess Royal University Hospital, Dr Steff Nash, who was invited to Burma in 2004 and witnessed first-hand the suffering of people who were denied basic levels of medical care. After joining forces with charity HOPE 4 the World, Dr Nash has helped train scores of other medics over the past five years but funding is still needed to reach their goal of helping to train 40 people in the next year.

The concert will feature new chamber groups, the Aquinas Piano Trio accompanied by violinist Ruth Rogers, cellist Katherine Jenkinson and pianist Martin Cousin. The performance starts at 7.30pm and tickets are £25 (£5 students) with 100 per cent going to the medical project. To book, call 020 8467 1566.
