Tenovus Sing for Life Choir
The Tenovus Sing For Life Choir perform at the National Cancer Resarch Institute Conference at the BT Convention Centre, Liverpool, 7.11.10. A truly remarkable choir made up of people who have been affected by cancer; the Sing for Life Choir was established in January, initially as a research project to measure the health and psychosocial benefits of singing for cancer patients and their familes and has since developed into a strong support network for its members who now meet on a weekly basis in the South Wales Valleys to learn new fun songs and rehearse for regular performances. Tenovus' motivation for setting up the choir was to give those who have been affected by cancer a space to come together in a fun, positive and energetic way and focus on something other than their cancer.
However, research carried out by Cardiff University has also shown that the choir can have significant benefits for improving the health and wellbeing of those who take part in it. The Tenovus Sing for Life Choir is open to anyone who has experienced cancer; its members include family, carers and friends as well as cancer patients. The choir is run in partnership with the motivational and team building company Sing and Inspire who ensure that the choir practices are always fun and inclusive, whilst also shaping the choir into top class live act!
