Choir

Music is a great way to bring people together and raise funds to stop prostate cancer being a killer. Whether it’s a choir concert, karaoke at your pub or a battle of the dad bands choose the activity that is your forte.

We’ve got all the notes below to make sure we’re all in tune for success.

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

Following its phenomenal success over the last few years, Men United in Song is back for 2019, once again raising money for Prostate Cancer UK.  The project, organised by Peterborough Male Voice Choir aims to sign 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!
