Public Service Broadcasting and very special guests will be performing at Islington Assembly Hall in London on Wednesday 23 November to raise funds for Bowel Cancer UK. The band are particularly keen to raise funds and publicity for Bowel Cancer UK after personal involvement with the disease.
PSB’s guitarist and songwriter J. Willgoose, Esq., explained further: “In late September last year my wife, Sarah, was diagnosed with stage 3 bowel cancer at the age of 33, totally out of the blue. She has now completed her treatment and we’re hopeful for the best possible outcome, so as a band we really wanted to try to do something positive to help promote the great work Bowel Cancer UK do for patients and their families.”
Sarah said: “A lot of people – myself included, prior to diagnosis – would think of bowel cancer as a disease which mainly affects older people. We really wanted to draw people’s attention to Bowel Cancer UK’s ‘Never Too Young’ campaign and make sure that people of all ages are aware of the symptoms of bowel cancer and know that they should seek medical attention straight away if they notice any of them.”
Tickets for the event will be available from at 10 am on Friday 26 August fromhttp://publicservicebroadcasting.net with all profits going to Bowel Cancer UK. For anyone who would like to donate to the cause but who can’t make the concert, PSB have also set up a Justgiving page for donations
