She’s known for her light hearted approach to mediumship but Angel Anne is using her new show to raise awareness about something a lot more serious.
Her ‘Dead Men Talking’ tour is in support of the John Hartson Foundation’s Grab Life By The Balls campaign and aims to raise awareness of testicular cancer. Ex-footballer John survived the disease and set up the charity to raise awareness among young and older men as well as to help other cancer sufferers.
At her Maltings show on September 4, Anne will chat about how women can play their part in preventing and detecting early signs of the cancer by giving their men a monthly check up. The campaign is all in good fun but with a serious message behind it.
“I have a son and grandsons and I know men often find it harder to open up about things ,” she told ‘WOW’, during a busy week when she was also expecting to welcome another grandson into the world.
“I’ve already had an email from one woman who came along to the show. She discussed it with her boyfriend who then checked himself and found a lump.
“He went to the doctors and fortunately the tests came back clear.”
The second half of Anne’s show will follow a more traditional mediumship route, although it will still link in with Grab Life By The Balls.
“I may be able to reach out to men that have passed away due to testicular cancer but the main thing I want to try and get across to the people who come along is that it’s far better to get their men to make regular checks and be fit and well than having to speak to them via a medium.”
Anne is donating 20% of profit from the tour to the John Hartson Foundation as well as raising funds on the evening.
Tickets for the 7pm show are priced £13 adults, £11 concessions, £7 children.
