Top doctor backs Bolton Cancer Voices' Christmas concert
AFTER-dinner speaker and Royal Bolton Hospital consultant Dr Kevin Jones is backing Bolton Cancer Voices’ Christmas concert.
Dr Jones, a consultant chest physician, will be the compere at the choir’s Jingle Bell Sing-a-long.
He said: “This is a new venture for me to compere a concert but I am really looking forward to bringing a bit of humour to a fantastic musical evening, I think it will be great fun working with such a talented and exuberant bunch of people.”
The choir, which launched last year, is believed to be the only one in the region that is for solely cancer patients and survivors. For the event on Saturday, December 7, at Victoria Hall in Knowsley Street, Bolton, the choir is taking the unprecedented step of inviting people who are cancer patients or cancer survivors from across the North West to take part.
The invitation has been extended to any professionals whose work involves treatment, care or support of cancer patients either in hospital or in the community.
Karen Elliott, chairman of the choir said: “It is wonderful to have Dr Jones on board, he’s a terribly funny man and also a terribly busy one.
Everyone is absolutely delighted that he’s agreed to take part in our event and we really appreciate his generosity in donating his time and talent to help make the evening a really special one for all concerned.”
She said more singers are still wanted. Rehearsals will be taking place each Monday in the run up to the evening and people taking part must attend.
The meetings will be at the Friends’ Meeting House in Silverwell Street in Bolton town centre from 7.30pm until 9.30pm from Monday, November 11. A dress rehearsal on December 7 will be held from 10am until 1pm.
