A $2 charity concert is coming to the Canberra Theatre Centre for a good cause

Posted on

The Royal Military College Band is taking back the stage at Canberra Theatre Centre for this year’s Music at Midday concert raising funds for local charity Bosom Buddies and you’re invited.

Enjoy music from one of Australia’s premier military bands, whilst also raising much-needed funds to support people who have been diagnosed with breast cancer.

The Royal Military College Band will be playing their take on modern hits as well as some old favourites on Tuesday 7 February to benefit Bosom Buddies, a small local charity that has been doing big things (on a small budget) here in Canberra for the past 25 years.

Last year their hard-working team of volunteers assembled over 800 Buddy Bags full of helpful items and information, which were then provided to people post-surgery by breast care nurses.

They have also helped to provide support for people from when they are diagnosed with breast cancer and through their treatment and beyond. Including peer support groups where people can connect and share their experiences with others going through a similar situation.

Relying entirely on donations from the community, events like these make a big difference for the team at Bosom Buddies.

The Royal Military College Band has performed across the globe including at the Centenary of Federation celebration in London at the start of the century and for ceremonial duties at Gallipoli on ANZAC Day, so it is a performance not to miss.

Pop in a long lunch on your work calendar and scrounge up a gold coin for a worthy cause.
