Music is a great warrior

While we may not have been hit with cancer personally, someone in our family or someone we know surely has. It is a daily battle for many people and a battle we can all contribute to in our own way. One way on Sunday in Limassol is the Fighting Cancer with Music event.

The event, which will run from 11am until 9pm at the Limassol Marina Square and the Trakasol Cultural Centre, is organised by the Limassol Marina and The Cyprus Anti-Cancer Society for a second year. The all-day music event will feature a series of activities for children – including face painting and workshops – a fundraising market selling arts and crafts, homemade delicacies, books and flowers, and open-air concerts. Young musicians, bands and DJs will perform in the square throughout the day while it will end with a bang from 7.30pm until 9.30pm when the local band Minus One will perform an electrifying concert at Trakasol.

While the kids play and you shop around, the live performance at the square will be staged by the Limassol Theatre Arts School, the Heritage School Band and other music bands by Cloud10 Promotions, such as, Rumba Attack, AvantTout and Triple Soul. All these performers will be volunteering their time and efforts for the cause, while their music will be broadcast live by Radio Proto from 11am until 1pm so everyone can hear about the fight and perhaps make their way to Limassol.

The entrance is free to all concerts and activities. During the event, Limassol Marina’s restaurants and cafés will also participate by contributing €1 to The Cyprus Anti-cancer Society from each bill issued. Net proceeds will be given to The Cyprus Anti-Cancer Society.
