New Sing for Life choir for the Isle of Wight

We’re launching a new Sing for Life choir on the Isle of Wight. We currently run three other popular choirs in Totton, Cosham and Salisbury, which give anyone affected by cancer the opportunity to come together, relax and have fun.

The details

The choir will meet on a Monday between 2.30pm and 4pm at our cancer Wellbeing Centre at 21 Lugley Street, Newport, PO30 5HD from 16th May. It’s open to anyone who’s been impacted by cancer in any way.

What people say

Sue Edmonds, Sing for Life’s musical director, says:

“The best thing about Sing for Life is that there’s no pressure to perform, or even turn up every week. You don’t need to audition, be able to read music or be an experienced singer. Being part of our choirs can really help anyone living with cancer because both music and a sense of belonging are immensely healing.”

Pete and his wife Sue joined the Cosham Sing for Life choir in 2013. Both have had bowel cancer, major surgery and chemotherapy. He says he finds it incredibly uplifting:

“It gives me so much more than just singing. Because we’ve all been affected by cancer in some way, we all support each other. Some people like to talk about it and others come along for the sense of togetherness, and both are ok. You might feel a bit rubbish when you arrive, but the coming together lifts you and you leave with a big smile that lasts for days.”
