Cabaret vs Cancer have announced Paulus – The Cabaret Geek as a new ambassador to celebrate their 5th birthday. Newly appointed Ambassador Paulus , cabaret emcee, comedian and seen recently on the BBC’s ‘All Together Now’, said,
“After admiring the great work Cabaret vs Cancer have done via the cabaret community over the past five years, I am delighted to have been asked to become their latest Ambassador. Working so intimately on a show about Victoria Wood, who we lost around the same time to the disease, and being recently bereaved of a family member to cancer this year myself, Cabaret vs Cancer is a cause that has become truly close to my heart in the past 18 months. I’m grateful and proud to be formalising my support for them.”
Rose Thorne, Director of Cabaret vs Cancer said,
“I am delighted to welcome Paulus to the team, his passion for the work we do and cabaret will make him a fantastic addition to the team! I am so proud that we are celebrating our 5th birthday having made such a positive difference to the lives of so many people.”
