Bands and DJs from across the local area are donating their time and talent free to raise essential funds for a cancer charity.

On Saturday, October 12, Tannochside Miners’ Welfare will host ‘music asylum for Cancer Research UK’ from 7pm.

Organiser Roz Bonnar said: “This event isn’t about choosing one family to support, it’s about the community pulling together to assist Cancer Research UK with the work they do.

“Too many people have a story to tell, for my family it’s about supporting a young girl who lost her mum, she was only 39 and is survived by three other daughters.

“We’re not all in a position to find a cure but we can do whatever it takes to help this charity find the answers, they already have in some cases and I’m positive they will continue to do so.

“We know people donate to charity, on this occasion though, we’re giving them something for the £10 ticket they buy.”

Gary Hollywood, Dino Doyle in Mrs Brown’s Boys, has his flight booked to return from Dublin especially for the event and is hoping his schedule allows this to happen.

He said “I’m hopeful that I will be there on the night to enjoy the live music on offer and I’d encourage the local community to come along for a night that promises to raise the roof while standing up to cancer.”

The event will be hosted by well known entertainer Peter Spider and his son Peter Clark.

Bands playing include Pedro, The Gnomes, Codename and Midnight Drive, while DJs including Stereofunk will take over one of the halls to promise a night of great entertainment for all who come along.

The £10 ticket is also the raffle ticket with a chance to win some fantastic prizes and every penny raised will be donated straight to the charity.
