Cancer Support Choir
SWAGG Cancer Support Choir
at The Catholic Club, Brook St, Chester CH1 3DZ
Formed out of a support group for working age people affected by cancer, this choir is open to anyone who wishes to support them in song and meets on Wednesdays in term-time, 7-9pm, at one of Chester's iconic historic pubs, now the Catholic Club.
There are currently no SWAGG sessions due to the COVID situation but existing and prospective members are welcome to join other events on offer until SWAGG can meet again.
