JAZZ musician Gerry Kreibich has composed a piece of music which is dear to the hearts of hospital volunteers.

Using the notes of the scale that are present in the words League of Friends, he has adapted them into a jazz arrangement and concerto for the league.

His specially-written composition was aired at Matlock Hospitals League of Friends annual meeting, held in the Presentation Convent in Matlock.

The secretary and treasurer had earlier reported on another succesful year of campaigning and also receipt of a number of generous legacies.

The Matlock league supports Whitworth Hospital, Darley Birth Centre and Orchard Cottage.

Funded by donations, the league is continually upgrading equipment and buildings to enhance the comfort of patients at all three sites and aims to promote issues facing them.
