A CHOIR made up of cancer patients and survivors has begun rehearsals for its performance at The Royal Albert Hall later this year.

Bolton Cancer Voices will take part in The Festival of Brass and Voices, in aid of Cancer Research UK, at the iconic venue this November.

But the choir needs to raise nearly £14,000 to cover transport to regional rehearsals, the event itself and two night’s accommodation in the capital.

They are calling on individuals, businesses and groups to make donations to their fundraising campaign, and help them meet the costs.
