Celebrated religious broadcaster the Rev Canon Roger Royle will address the Ulster Cancer Foundation’s annual interdenominational Celebration of Life service in Fisherwick Presbyterian Church, Belfast, on March 25.
Canon Royle, who has presented Sunday Half Hour on BBC Radio Two for the past 16 years, recently announced he is to step down from the job, with his last Sunday Half Hour broadcast on Easter Day, Sunday April 8.
A regular contributed to Terry Wogan’s Pause for Thought, Canon Royle has also presented Songs of Praise and a number of other radio and televison shows.
The Celebration of Life services is an opportunity to celebrate the strength and courage of those who live with cancer and to give thanks for those who care for them. It is also an opportunity to remember family and friends who have lost their lives to cancer and the inspiration they have been.
The theme of the service is once again one of Hope. Music provided by Cairnshill Primary School and Armagh Old Boys Silver Band.
In Northern Ireland, with 46,000 people currently living with cancer and almost 9,000 people diagnosed every year, the need for our Cancer Information Helpline, Counselling and Support Services has never been greater.
The Ulster Cancer Foundation is dedicated to helping cancer patients and their families cope with one of the greatest challenges of their lives.
The Celebration of Life Service will be held on Sunday March 25 at 3pm.
