Vigo Singers are “In the Pink” for Kent breast cancer charity
The Vigo Singers, a popular local all female choir, will be singing in aid of Breast Cancer Kent at 7.30pm on Saturday 18 July in St John The Baptist Church, Meopham.
Choir member, Erica Martin, said:
“We were keen to do a charity concert and, as many members of the choir have been affected directly or indirectly by breast cancer, the final choice was an easy one. Breast Cancer Kent do a fantastic job providing innovative medical equipment and supporting research. All the money raised from our concert will go towards this important work and we really hope to fill the Church to the rafters.”
Conducted by Ciara Considine, who was recently choirmaster for the winning P&O Ferries Choir in Gareth Malone’s BBC2 series “Sing While You Work” , the Vigo Singers will entertain guests with a wide repertoire of choral music from classicals and spirituals to songs from the shows. There really will be something for everybody.
On this special occasion, the Vigo Singers will be joined by a guest choir – The Grove Singers – a mixed choir from London, conducted by Beverley Howard and MP for Gravesham, Adam Holloway, who will be opening the concert.
Breast Cancer Kent was set up in 1996 to raise money to help anyone affected by breast cancer in the local area. The charity recently funded a digital breast tomosynthesis machine which uses newly developed 3D imaging to diagnose small, early cancers. The technique is particularly useful for younger women with dense breast tissue as it is often difficult to see small cancers on normal mammograms.
Tickets cost £10 (Under-16s free) and can be bought from the St John’s Centre, Wrotham Road, Meopham, via Linda King 01474-705519 or on the door.
