Public Service Broadcasting
In aid of Bowel Cancer UK
Public Service Broadcasting + Ed Byrne + other special guests are hosting a special fundraising concert in aid of Bowel Cancer UK (1071038).
Every year in the UK, over 41,000 people are diagnosed with bowel cancer and more than 16,000 people die of the disease. Bowel Cancer UK is determined to save lives and improve the quality of life for all those affected by bowel cancer.
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.”
Head of Public Fundraising for Bowel Cancer UK, Sarah Weber, said, “Without people like Public Service Broadcasting doing amazing fundraising events like this, Bowel Cancer UK couldn’t continue to do vital life-saving work and improve the quality of life for all those affected by bowel cancer.”
All profits from this gig are 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: http://www.justgiving.com/publicservicebroadcasting
