A charity music night took place at The Market Tavern - http://www.themarkettavern-sandbach.co.uk/ - in Sandbach on Wednesday 27th March 2013.
The concert was in aid of the Teenage Cancer Trust - http://www.teenagecancertrust.org/ - and acts included Dayve Dean, Jonathan Tarplee, Nick Bayes, Phil Maddocks, Dave Dove, Neil Smith, Liz Rosenfield, Geoff Mather and Nigel Kurtis Blonde.
The Market Tavern licensees Kevin McAvan and Steve Jones generously allowed their premises to be used at no charge for the concert. £282.36 was raised at the event for the charity.
Organiser Louise Gibson said, “I was motivated to organise the event by my cousin Lucy Pullen who has overcome a cancerous brain tumour. Lucy lives in Surrey and has setup a fund-raising committee to raise money for the Teenage Cancer Trust. I was inspired by Lucy’s bravery and wanted to raise money to kit out specialist teenage units in hospitals. I would like to thank everyone for attending, Kevin & Steve for allowing us to use their premises and to the musicians for playing.”
Louise plans to organise another charity music concert for the Teenage Cancer Trust at The Market Tavern in July this year.
