DONATE HERE to our Christmas Appeal in aid of Newbridge Cancer Support Group: ➡️
A beautiful performance of REM’s classic song ‘Everybody Hurts’ arranged by Owen C Lynch & performed by the BIG C CHOIR.
The BIG C CHOIR are a Co. Kildare based mixed choir who fund raise tirelessly for cancer related charities throughout Ireland. The choir was founded in 2011 by Christina O’ Connell, herself a survivor of breast cancer. “There is great power and healing in music. I experienced this first hand when I was ill and this is what inspired me to start the BIG C CHOIR.
We started small with just 4 people and now we have over 50 members.
Our fundraising concerts are a huge part of what we do. To date, we have proudly raised over €72,000 for cancer related charities including Newbridge Cancer Support Group, St. Brigid’s Hospice, Friends of Naas Hospital,
St. James Hospital Research, St. James’s Hospital Oncology,
Crumlin Medical & Research Foundation, St. John’s Ward Crumlin,
the Jack & Jill Foundation and The Irish Cancer Society.
This recording is the BIG C CHOIR’s Covid Project. This Christmas, they are delighted to sing in support of Newbridge Cancer Support Group. NCSG are a wonderful local group who offer comfort, support and different resources to help one through their diagnosis and treatment . A self-funding group, they rely greatly on the kindness and generosity of others to allow them to continue with their all important and life changing work. In these difficult times, now, more than ever, they need your support. Please consider donating to our Gofundme page in support of their wonderful work within the community.
