sufferers and survivors of cancer came together for a singing workshop at Doncaster’s Royal Infirmary.

A choir of 26 who had been touched by cancer in some way turned to songs to find strength and inspiration.

The Doncaster Gynaecology Cancer Support Group met with the Courage To Sing - a London-based company that provides singing workshops to hospitals and businesses.

Voice coach Joshua Millais travelled from London on the day especially to lead the session, which included participation from women who suffer from cancer, survivors of cancer, their husbands and children also attended, along with friends and carers.

Cancer sufferer Marie-Antoinette Planté planned the event so that everyone would have a chance to take part in something inspirational and unforgettable.

Mr Millais, who is the London director of Courage To Sing, conducted the event and was praised for creating an atmosphere which oozed “enthusiasm and self-belief”.

It was a two-hour workshop, which culminated in the group showing off their new-found voices to inpatients on Ward G5, Gynaecology.

They sang a hymn followed by a Christmas carol.
