World Cancer Day 2018

Today, Sunday 4th of February is World Cancer Day, an international event to raise awareness of cancer and how important it is that we do everything we can to prevent it.

Here’s a message from Matt about The Bed & Breakfast Men’s support of cancer charities:

““It’s fitting that this year’s Mad Chat charity of choice is CLIC Sargent Cancer charity as our Ukulele duo has its roots in our early incarnation as “The Lonesome Pines” when we busked for a Saturday every year in aid of Cancer Research. It’s something we got the idea for when Suggs promoted “Busking for Cancer” a few years back. The Lonesome Pines morphed into The Bed & Breakfast Men but our aim is the same to sing the songs we love and raise money for a cause that’s close to our hearts, fund raising should be “fun” after all. It was great to hear that Lee Thompson also supports CLIC sargent and was happy to be on board for our last charity single… We are hoping he’s up for the next one, too. So Keep Moving folks and together we can Compete with Cancer and kick it’s ass off the planet someday soon we hope.”

Today Matt and Nick have released a very fitting and encouraging Madness cover mash-up of ‘Keep Moving’ and ‘I’ll Compete’, first performed by Matt at the Mad Chatter’s Tea Party in November 2017.

As you know, the current Mad Chat charity cause is CLIC Sargent, a charity focused on helping young people diagnosed with cancer. Last Christmas the boys released their second charity single, ‘To the Moon (and Back Again)’ in aid of CLIC Sargent.

Thanks again to everyone who did their bit by buying either a CD, download, DVD, or special package – Over £700 was raised to help young people diagnosed with cancer.
