The choir was originally set up in August 2013 as a backing group for a charity single being recorded by classical singers Camilla Kerslake and Blake on behalf of the Breast Cancer Campaign charity.
During 2013, the choir performed at a number of events during Breast Cancer Awareness month, notably the Pink Ribbon Ball (Breast Cancer Campaign), the Inspiration Awards for Women (Breakthrough Breast Cancer) and at a MacMillan coffee morning on Park Lane – and also live on television for ITV’s “This Morning” programme to promote the single.

In October 2014, the choir came together again with Camilla Kerslake and Blake to perform at Breast Cancer Care’s fashion show, and appeared with Camilla for a second time at the Inspiration Awards for Women.
In 2015, the choir re-formed with some original members and is also recruiting new members for potential events during Breast Cancer Awareness month in October.
