My September fundraising event for my Guitars 4 Good project (re. childhood cancer awareness) is called ‘Gigging 4 Gold’: it’s a play on words (digging for gold); gold is the colour of the ribbon for childhood cancer awareness and the bands will in fact be gigging for gold (i.e., money).
Stereophonics’ PA, Natalie, has sent me an autographed photo of the band to sell/raffle on behalf of Guitars 4 Good. Aberdare of course is Stereophonics' home town.
The bands performing at the fundraiser are being interviewed over the 3 weeks leading up to the gig, on Radio Tircoed, an FM radio station (Swansea) which has a large audience.
I also have Solving Kids’ Cancer wristbands which will be sold on the night. The proceeds from which will go to a 5 year old Mia Chambers from the town next to mine, Merthyr Tydfil, who is suffering from neuroblastoma.
