Children with Cancer UK is celebrating more than 30 years of raising and investing funds into vital specialist research to save children’s lives and keep families together. Bravery To The Bell is the perfect opportunity to bring families together to enjoy a line-up of some of the very best entertainment in the UK, while also supporting a leading children’s cancer charity.
Bravery To The Bell - staged during Cancer Awareness Month - is a two hour show of song, dance, comedy and magic... but the biggest stars in each show will be local children in remission who will get to ring a bell placed centre stage, in what will
surely be an amazing show-stopping moment. The end of treatment bell symbolises the joyful moment all children with cancer look forward to - completing their treatment and returning home to normal life with their families.
Fleur East said: ‘Not only will you get an enjoyable night out but proceeds from Bravery To The Bell will go to Children with Cancer UK to enable them to continue funding research into more ways to kick cancer once and for all. I am honoured to be associated with such an amazing and worthwhile cause.”
Tomorrow Is A Better Day is available now to download on iTunes, Google Play and Amazon Music, with all proceeds to be donated to Children with Cancer UK. Or download the free app Bravery To The Bell available now in the app store.
Bourne Media Group’s Suzanne Shaw and Laura Taylor, producers of Bravery To The Bell, are also launching a competition for members of the public to win tickets to join the cast on stage for the finale of the show to sing the charity single.
