A Sudbury woman who overcame her battle with cancer is to perform with her vocal harmony group at a charity concert.

In 2011, Emma Richbell, from Newton Croft, was diagnosed with breast cancer.

The 42-year-old was one of the lucky ones and, following treatment, was given the all clear by doctors.

“Sadly, since then, we’ve had two friends who have died prematurely from cancer,” said Mrs Richbell.

Choosing to raise money for Cancer Research UK, the group of singers, who call themselves The Accidentals, set about organising a charity concert in St Peter’s.

At the concert, they will perform a variety of songs, from Abba to Lady Gaga, before handing the mic over to other local performers.

Mrs Richbell said: “Breast cancer receives lots of funding and I’m truly grateful to be one of the many women who now survive this awful disease, however, there are other cancers that still need more research.

“Please come along to show your support and help us raise as much money as possible.”

The concert is on Sunday, June 8, from 3.30pm to 5pm. Tickets, costing £8, can be bought from Compact Music or the Tourist Information Centre, both in Sudbury.
