On Friday 17 August, Gaudeamus Chorale will perform Haydn’s The Creation here at Hereford Cathedral in support of Cancer Research UK. Did you know that there is a very local link to this performance in the form of Bobbie Heavens who has supported the work of Cancer Research UK throughout the years?

After a 30-year career in the International Travel Industry followed by recent years in the Tourism and Hospitality sector for Herefordshire and the West Midlands, Bobbie Heavens worked for a short time supporting her Husband, Tony – in raising funds for the then Cancer Research Campaign.

They covered Herefordshire, Worcestershire and Shropshire and after the very sudden loss of her husband with Bowel Cancer, she has always supported the essential work of prevention, diagnosis and treatment – with her thoughts on her children, grandchildren and now a great granddaughter.

Although trying to downscale on her activities in the county, she could not resist becoming involved in the wonderful opportunity to raise funds with the Gaudeamus Chorale - who will be singing Haydn’s The Creation, at her favourite “special musical venue” – Hereford Cathedral.

 “I have been delighted for the support of many colleagues in sponsorship to ensure that funds go direct to Cancer Research UK from the Concert performance, which takes place at Hereford Cathedral on Friday 17th August”.

You can read more about the concert on the Hereford Times website.
