A STOURBRIDGE singers hope to raise the roof and funds to help women fighting breast cancer when they take to the stage at Birmingham's Symphony Hall this weekend.

Members of the Stourbridge branch of Got 2 Sing Choir, plus other Got 2 members from across the Midlands, will be performing in the This is Us concert on Sunday August 18 in support of the Ladies Fighting Breast Cancer (LFBC) charity.

The charity, which works exclusively with Birmingham's Queen Elizabeth Hospital, has its own choir - the LFBC Well-being Community Choir - made up of members affected by breast cancer, and they too will join Got 2 Sing members on stage to perform Lean on Me.

Beth Dunn, founder of Got 2 Sing Choir, and leader of Stourbridge Choir, said: “This Symphony Hall concert presents a wonderful fundraising opportunity - allowing the LFBC charity to leverage their fundraising whilst adding a new dimension to what will be a truly spectacular event. It will be wonderful partnering with their choir.

“Many of our own choir members have been affected by breast cancer and everyone knows someone touched by it. But it is also pleasing to hear about the health benefits, both mental and physical, that singing has brought to those people, helping them through their illness. There’s a lot to be said for singing.”

Choir members have learned a full programme of contemporary and classic songs, mastered hundreds of moves and spent many hours in rehearsals.

Beth added: "If it is anything like our last performance at the Symphony Hall it will be a wonderful concert. So much hard work has been put in all round and it has been a delight working with LFBC. I hope it proves to be a resounding success, not just for the choirs, but for the charity too."

Tickets for the concert are available from the Symphony Hall. Visit www.thsh.co.uk.

At the last concert at the Symphony Hall in 2017, Got 2 Sing Choir raised more than £8,000 for a Worcester based breast cancer charity and they hope a similar amount will be raised at this year's concert.
