Wednesday, 8th November 2017 | General | 0 comments

North West Cancer Research will bring its Christmas ‘Concert for a Cure’ back for a third year.

The carol service will turn Lutyens Crypt in Liverpool’s Metropolitan Cathedral into a festive wonderland that will deliver a message of hope to those who have been affected by cancer.

On Sunday 10th December, North West Cancer Research ambassador Danielle Thomas will lead the carols with her distinctive mezzo soprano vocals.

Supported by the Birkenhead Operatic Society Trust (BOST) the event will inspire and unite people from all over the region in song.  

Guests will hear from some of the city’s top researchers and clinicians, who the charity currently supports.

They will share how the money raised by fundraisers, volunteers and supporters, facilitates research which is changing the lives of those with cancer and helping them live longer.

Over the next five years, North West Cancer Research has committed to funding more than £5.2million worth of research at the University of Liverpool.

This includes a £1million boost which will ensure the North West Cancer Research Centre at the University can continue to fund world-class projects until 2021.

Singer Danielle, who lost her Grandad to cancer five years ago, has headlined the ‘Concert for a Cure’ for the past three years.

She said: “Christmas should be a time to enjoy with our loved ones, sadly those who have suffered a loss from cancer can’t always do that.

 “Concert for a Cure aims to raise the spirits of those affected by the disease whilst raising money to progress research.”

Alastair Richards, CEO of North West Cancer Research, said: “The money raised from Concert for a Cure will continue to fund the world-class research taking place in Liverpool.

“We are already seeing significant breakthroughs in the way we treat cancer and so every ticket bought really will be helping to stop cancer sooner.”

Concert for a Cure will take place on Sunday 10th December at 3pm (doors open at 2.30pm) at the Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral, Lutyens Crypt.

Tickets cost £10 for adults and concessions for the over 70’s and children under 16 are £6.
