2013 was a good one for me and I'm hoping 2014 will go as well!
It has started well as last Tuesday, I started the choir which I've been planning to set up for a while now.
Last summer, I approached the survivorship team at Castle Hill Hospital about setting up a choir for people will cancer, either going through it right now or in the past. I was keen to get something running that would give people a more positive experience from cancer and a more positive association with the hospital and staff involved, rather than it just being all about the treatment and pain and bad news, as well as the fact that singing is proven to be an excellent mood booster and anxiety buster!
We finally managed to get this organised, and started last week-so far, so good!
We have attempted a few bits and pieces and I am so impressed at their enthusiasm and how quickly they are picking this up!
I think our aim is to put some sort of concert together to raise money for Macmillan and with weekly rehearsals...watch this space!
