Children's Christmas Concert

UK soul singer Natasha Watts was the driving force behind the fundraising carol singing and dance concert held at Queen Mary’s Hall, Queen Mary’s College. Nearly 140 children from local schools and dance groups took part in the festive event which was attended by more than 200 people and raised almost £2,500 – a sum that was doubled by findmeagrant

It was Natasha’s personal experience of having to drive her mum to Guildford for cancer treatment that inspired her to support our campaign, which will bring similar treatment closer to home for people in the catchment area that it will serve.

Natasha said: “Because of what my mum went through, in having to travel a long distance for treatment, I know how important the new cancer centre will be. I was very close to my mum, and I am supporting the cancer centre fundraising campaign in her honour.”

While her mum sadly lost her fight against cancer, Natasha knows that what she, and fellow fundraisers, is doing will really make a difference to so many cancer patients, and their families, in the future.

Grateful for the support that she received from local schools, other groups who took part in the concert, fellow volunteers and everyone who contributed to the raffle prizes.
