Voices for Hospices Charity Concert 2013


Strike Force getting the audience to "Change the World"

The Singapore Hospice Council (SHC) recently held its Voices for Hospice Charity Concert on Saturday, 12 October 2013. Graced by Senior Minister of State (Health), Dr Amy Khor, the concert, which is SHC's main fund raising platform saw a very good crowd turn out at the 1200-capacity Singapore Polytechnic Convention Centre. The audience enjoyed themselves thoroughly - not surprising given the excellent and entertaining line up comprising many talented (including) young performers such as Miguel Antonio, Lauren Yeo, students from the School of the Arts, the legendary Rahima Rahim and the energetic percussion group, Strike Force.

In her speech, Dr Khor revealed that the Ministry of Health is keen to expand the palliative care sector. To read her speech in full, click here.

We thank the organising Committee for their collective hard work and until the next concert in 2015!
