Following last year’s big nationwide hootenanny, those crazy Caroline Foundation kids are keen to teach the world to sing once again with the return of Give Us A Song.
The event is the nationwide Give Us A Song singathon happening on the first weekend in February to mark World Cancer Day on the 4th.
Here’s the spiel, baby…
Once again, people from all over Ireland are coming together to Give Us A Song!
We’re calling all choirs, singing groups, friends and work colleagues in every corner of the country to organise a performance in your area – sing songs, shake the buckets, and help raise much-needed funds for vital cancer research.
It’s all happening from 1st, 2nd, 3rd & 4TH February 2019, marking World Cancer Day 2019. And there’s plenty of grooviness to choose from, as the chart on the right proves.
“World Cancer Day falls on the 4th of Februaryeach year. It’s a remarkable coincidence that this was also Caroline’s birthday,” said her father, Dermod Dwyer. The Caroline Foundation was established in 2013 after the 35-year-old died following a nine-year battle with cancer. “It’s a very special day in our calendar and we hope to make it a special day for everyone by making Give Us A Song! an annual event,” added Dermod.
