October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and we are delighted to be able to kick start our campaign with the news that we will be supporting the Worcestershire Breast Unit Haven at our 2017 Symphony Hall Concert!
The charity is relatively new and was set up after the Haven – situated on the Worcestershire Royal Hospital site – opened in February 2016.
The Unit provides a comprehensive service under one roof, with state-of-the-art equipment, including new digital mammogram and ultrasound machines. Its aim is to be one of the best breast units in the UK, providing clinical services, assistance and complementary therapies over and above what the NHS can offer so we will be supporting this charity throughout this month and of course at the Symphony Hall!
EverybodyEverybody Knows Somebody … we have heard many personal stories from our members of their experience of breast cancer and how joining a choir / singing has brightened up many a dark day. Some of them have agreed to share their story and so, throughout October, we will be publishing those in the hope that they may help others – including their families and carers – feel they are not alone.
Pinking it Up! We will also be doing a little bit of fundraising too…how could we go through October without having an excuse to ‘Pink it Up’! Week commencing 17th October we’re asking everyone to turn up for choir completely in the pink…and yes, that includes the men too!!
Every penny we raise will go towards helping someone facing breast cancer, so let’s make October well and truly pink!!
