Calling all choirs
Are you and your choir organising a concert in 2019? Why not support Prostate Cancer UK and sing for men?
We’ll give you everything you need, from posters to collection tins, balloons and badges – we will help make sure your event is a cracker.
Not part of an official choir but want to sing for men? Don’t worry – getting a group of your friends together to sing could be the best idea for a new challenge you had all year.
There are lots of other ways you can support us through singing or music:
- Karaoke at your local pub
- Singing in a supermarket or local station
- Singing in your workplace or at school
- Getting your old band back together for a gig
Support us for the year
Does your choir or singing group choose a charity to support all year round? We would love you to choose Prostate Cancer UK. In return we can offer:
- Resources and materials such as posters, balloons, collection tins and more
- Ongoing support and guidance on ways to fundraise and maximise your impact
- Awareness talks from trained volunteers for groups of 5-100 people
Men United in Song
For four years, Will Prideaux, has led the Peterborough Male Voice Choir to take on Men United in Song, and since they began, the project has raised over an incredible £15,575 to help us stop prostate cancer being killer.
We think that deserves a standing ovation, don't you!?
Peterborough Male Voice Choir signed up 40 local men with a range of previous singing experience (many who have never sung before!) to rehearse over 10 weeks and then culminates in a concert raising funds for the charity. This has engaged hundreds of local men, raising many thousands of pounds for Prostate Cancer UK, as well as inspiring similar projects across the country – a fantastic result!
Having seen Men United in Song advertised in previous years and been tempted to get involved, I finally got the impetus to go for it when my father was diagnosed” says Martin from Bourne. “Although the idea initially filled me with some trepidation, the experience proved to be extremely enjoyable and fulfilling. It’s a very rewarding opportunity whilst raising vital awareness and funds for the continuing fight against prostate cancer.
Northampton Male Voice Choir were so inspired that last April they decided to hold their own version - raising a whopping £15,000 in one concert – the best part was that none of the men could actually sing before they joined the choir, and they managed to recruit lots of new members! A win win!
