£1160 raised for Cancer Research UK
Voices In Harmony organised a concert to support Cancer Research UK in Cornbow Hall, Halesowen on 5 April 2014 compered by Michael Collie (BBC Midlands Today). A total of £1160 was raised and presented to the Halesowen Cancer Research UK shop which has been broken into 6 times in 2 years.
Voices in Harmony decided to give the £1,160 proceeds of a planned fundraising concert at the town’s Cornbow Hall to the Cancer Research UK shop rather than send it directly to CRUK’s central fund.
Shop manager Jean Shaw said: “Although the money will end up in exactly the same place, each shop has to justify its existence and the money Voices in Harmony Choir has donated to Cancer Research UK via our shop will help keep a presence here in the High Street and so help us to continue to raise funds for researchers in their quest for cancer cures and treatments.”
