Suffolk trio The Kettle Girls are performing a show in aid of The Ipswich Hospital Blossom Appeal and Cancer Research.
It’s a cause close to the singers’ hearts, with one member diagnosed with breast cancer last year and a close relative of another diagnosed a few weeks later.
The a cappella group’s Jenny May said: “All the staff I met while receiving care at Ipswich Hospital were wonderful and I can’t thank them enough. Receiving a diagnosis of cancer at the age of 35, seemingly out of nowhere, was hugely frightening.
“Although nothing will make the treatment and side effects from it easy, I always felt cared for, listened to and given a positive plan of action. I hope our Loving Life event will not only show our appreciation for all cancer professionals, but will also give a positive message that you can still live and love life during and after a cancer diagnosis.”
The Blossom Appeal aims to build a new breast care centre at Ipswich Hospital where all patients can receive state-of-the-art care under one roof.
The April 28 fundraiser, at Stowmarket’s John Peel Centre, starts at 8pm and features a mix of styles including jazz, folk, comedy and original songs. The trio, which also includes Heather Bexon and Ilona Stretch, will be joined by Bex and Freda.
