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.

Excited (and a tad nervous) to be arranging my first ever fundraiser for my project 'Guitars 4 Good'.

3 amazing rock bands from South Wales will be playing: Nuclear Lullaby (pg. 2 of PP&P); The Starling Radicals (pg. 8) and Beyond The Break (pg. 12).

It's on Saturday, September 23rd and I've done a poster in readiness, just waiting on one of the bands to confirm something.

Funds raised will go towards buying personalised gifts for the children, future funding of 'G4G music as therapy' sessions on paediatric oncology wards, and some G4G merchandise (keyrings, wristbands) to help spread childhood cancer awareness.

I've done a poster for social media use, with details of how funds raised will be used - it's attached to this post, but I'm not sure you will be able to read it properly. I will be sharing it on Facebook (on the PP&P page, JD Music page and of course the Guitars 4 Good page) where it will be more clearly visible.
