SPREAD THE CHRISTMAS CHEER FOR PREVENT BREAST CANCER
A Wythenshawe based breast cancer charity is set to bring together eight choirs from across Greater Manchester as part of its annual Christmas Celebration.
Prevent Breast Cancer, which is the only charity in the UK to focus solely on the prediction and prevention of the disease, will be hosting the festivities at Manchester Cathedral on the evening of Friday 21 December.
The evening will be kicked off by a musical nativity play performed by local children, followed with performances by a variety of choirs singing Christmas classics, including Altrincham-based choirs Absolute Belters, The Music Place and Simply Voices, as well as the Little Belters – a children’s choir founded in Altrincham in 2012. Also performing are the The Nightingale Choir, comprising staff and volunteers from The Nightingale Centre at Wythenshawe Hospital, where the charity is based.
The event will also feature a Christmas market, where attendees will be able to pick up last-minute gifts and enjoy a range of festive food and drink.
Nikki Barraclough, executive director at Prevent Breast Cancer, said: “The charity has had a great year and we’re so proud of what we have been able to achieve. The support and generosity that we have received has been overwhelming, and 2019 is set to be an even bigger year for the charity. Our aim is to create a future free from breast cancer, so that no-one will ever have to face the disease. This event will raise crucial funds for the charity and get us ever closer to our goal of raising £1 million per year, but we’re also thrilled to be throwing this event to say thank you to our amazing supporters, staff and researchers.”
Tickets for the evening are now sold out. The event starts at 6.30pm and is sponsored by infrastructure contractor, Excalon.
