Join the Ovacome choir!

Dear All

Here is a message about the London pilot for the Ovacome choir project, in case you don't see our social media posts:

We now have dates and a venue for the London pilot Ovacome choir!

The choir is completely free to attend and will provide an opportunity to meet others whose lives have been affected by ovarian cancer, in a friendly and supportive environment. Everyone is welcome, regardless of age and ability, so bring along your family and friends!

We will be meeting in Bloomsbury Central Baptist Church, 235 Shaftesbury Avenue, London WC2H 8EP. Our musical director is Naveen Arles.

We can't wait to see you there! Do let us know if you will be attending, by emailing l.priestly@ovacome.org.uk or by calling 0207 299 6651.

Time 2-5pm

Dates: 13th October

Hi Lyndy

That's great! You don't have to commit to all the dates, we know people will be on treatment or other things will be happening that mean you can't make it all the time. It's completely flexible, come to as many or as few as you feel like. If you think you can make any of the times, do let Lee know by emailing l.priestly@ovacome.org.uk . It would be lovely to see you there!

Best wishes

Hello harpist_UK

If the pilot in London goes well we would be looking to expand the project regionally so hopefully there will be choirs that are easier to get to for you. We'll advertise them when they are starting up.

I’d love this too, sadly I’m in Staffordshire too far away!

If I wasn’t about to start treatment I’d travel, keep us posted on here it would be lovely to hear what song choices they are making xx

Hi Dawn

That would be a bit far to travel! If we link in with any overseas choirs we'll certainly let everyone know.
