At their recent concert “Welcome to Broadway” the Ythan Singers raised £1500 for the chosen charity: The Brain Tumour Charity.

They were delighted to make the presentation to their community ambassador, Gillian Webster.

The Brain Tumour Charity is the world’s leading brain tumour charity and the largest dedicated funder of research into brain tumours globally.

It is committed to improving life for everyone affected and by brain tumours and to defending the most incredible part of the human body.

It goals are to see double survival by 2025 and halve the harm that brain tumours have on quality of life by 2020.

It is investing in more forward-thinking research, more specialist support services and lobbying for urgent change.

A spokesperson for the charity said: “What a wonderful amount The Ythan Singers have raised. Thank you so much for this support. The money raised could help us fund sixfull days of research into brain tumours and ultimately help us to find a cure.”

The choir would also like to thank everyone who came to the concert for their tremendous support both with their appreciation and for raising this amount of money.

The Brain Tumour Charity is organising a further fund-raising event, a 10k Twilight walk along the Deeside railway in Aberdeen on Sunday, November 3.
