Gala evening to raise money for Cancer Research

Wednesday, 9th April 2014

A gala charity evening comes to the Tamworth Assembly Rooms this Saturday to raise money for Cancer Research.

The event has been organised by Jean Rhema, an Atherstone woman who herself has suffered from cancer, and brings together a whole host of talent for one night only, this week, Saturday xApril 12.

Jean said: “Last year I lost two lifelong friends with lung cancer, and I am battling skin cancer, so I thought it would be good to put on a show for all the families who have been blighted by this terrible disease, bringing everyone together to support one another.

“I run a hair and make-up academy at Atherstone. So with the help of all staff, families and friends we have been able together to bring a wonderful evening of entertainment and fashion.”

Appearing at the show is Victoria Perks from Fuzz Box, Billy Brown, Amilia Scalies, Justin Willis, Geri Minelli and Tamworth Entertainer of the Year Scott Storey.

Tickets are just £10 and can be bought from the Tamworth Tourist Information Centre on 01827 709618 or through
