Bolton Cancer Patients and Carers Consultative Group have announced the formation of a new Choir specifically for cancer patients and cancer survivors living in the area. Whatever stage people are at in their cancer journey whether newly diagnosed, living with a life-limiting condition or a cancer survivor ‘Bolton Cancer Voices’ wants to hear from you.
People don’t need to be able to read music or be fantastic singers they just need enthusiasm, a willingness to learn and the desire to have fun. There are no membership fees and membership is extended to enable patients and survivors to take along a family member or friend to join with them.
Karen Elliott, Chair of Bolton Cancer Patients and Carers Consultative Group said:-
‘Singing can be a very uplifting experience; it’s a great confidence builder with the potential to breakdown some of the barriers that cancer can create along with the opportunity to make new friends.
We really hope that people will embrace the opportunity and want to be part of this exciting venture. We want the Choir to be a source of inspiration both for its members and the many others whose lives are touched by cancer and in keeping with this the Choir will seek opportunities to perform publically.’
The first rehearsal is on Monday, 25th June, 7.15pm in The Friends Meeting House, Silverwell Street, Bolton, next to the Parish Church.
