Dr Graham Rideal plays the saxophone and clarinet in support of Relative Comfort Appeal

Dr Graham Rideal, CEO of Chester, UK-based calibration standards company Whitehouse Scientific, has once again serenaded patients, visitors and staff at the Countess of Chester Hospital by playing the saxophone and clarinet to raise funds for the Trust's Relative Comfort Appeal.

Through his musical performances, Dr Rideal, a former patient at the hospital, has now donated more than £3,000 to support this appeal. The Trust has raised in excess of £300,000 which will help provide overnight accommodation and counselling rooms for friends and family of critically ill patients.

'The hospital has helped me through both colon and liver cancer and I owe my life to the doctors who treated me. I know how much loved ones are needed around the clock by patients throughout such tough times,' Dr Rideal said. 'It was very satisfying to see the pleasure my music brought to visitors and patients alike while raising money for this important cause.'
