Glory, glory Men United singing group

A Moulton Chapel farmer is urging other men to get singing in the fight against prostate cancer.

Last year, John Wakefield was one of 40 to sign up to Men United in Song, a choir that rehearsed over 10 weeks for a charity concert.

The initiative from the charity Prostate Cancer UK is back again in 2019 with introduction sessions on February 27 and 28 and March 2 at the John Mansfield Campus in Peterborough.

John said: “I was looking for something new to do and Men United in Song seemed like a great way of meeting new people and supporting a good cause, as I know a few people who have suffered prostate cancer.

“It was the first time I’ve really done anything like this – I wasn’t sure what to expect and it was quite a steep learning curve!

“Before I joined up I didn’t realise that not everyone in a choir sang all the same words together, there are harmonies too, and when it all comes together it sounds absolutely amazing!

“Performing in the concert at the end of the project was the icing on the cake.”
Absolutely no previous experience is required to join, just a willingness to get involved and give it your best shot.
