Hundreds of Breast Cancer Haven supporters enjoyed an evening of carols, music and readings from a talented cast of actors and musicians.

St Peter’s Church was the venue for last Monday’s charity concert which began with the traditional carol ‘Once in Royal David’s City’.

Celebrity guests Martin Clunes, Clive Mantle and Tom Goodman- Hill entertained the audience with amusing festive readings.

Between the readings the church rang to the sounds of various groups of talented singers and musicians including, Jamie Crook, Nick Blunn, Sonia Ruth, Hollie Chapman, Catherine Lawlor, West Hill Park Choir and Tre Amici.

The three members of Tre Amici had travelled down from Hull especially for the concert and had a six hour drive home directly after their performance.

A moving, yet humorous, ‘Visitor’s Story’ was given by breast cancer sufferer and ‘Haven’ client Dr Olugbenga Taiwo.

Dr Taiwo who is a senior lecturer at the University of Winchester explained how he became the first male client with breast cancer at the ‘Haven ‘in Titchfield.
