As some of you are probably aware local musician Alfie Simms (Alfie's shooting blanks/The Groove Radicals) was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma a short while ago, unfortunately, the Chemo has not worked, and therefore he is about to undergo an intense round of chemo.
We're holding a fundraising event
to raise funds to support Alfie, Ally (his wife), along with their 2 children during this difficult time both physically & financially. Below are the top line details for the event that I've just started to arrange which will be held at The Swiss Chalet Swindon on Saturday 1st July. & full details will be updated in due course.
Live music from 12:00 with lots of local musicians playing throughout the day, from 8-piece bands to 1 man & his guitar, and pretty much every genre you could think of.
Confirmed music so far includes The Groove Radicals, One Chord Wonders, The Wirebirds, Craig Hutchesson, Ian Kenna. (once line-up is finalised we'll release the timings)
We're looking for stalls selling wares, raffles, tombola, auction, etc.
face painting for kids & adults, bouncy castle, etc.
Sponsors for the event, with your business logo, added to the advertising & facilities for banners to be displayed on the weekend of the event.
If you know of anyone who'd be interested in supplying a stall or something else that will bring the crowd in please feel free to give me a shout or pass on my contact details to others.
