This Sunday 6 November a very special Charity Concert will take place at the Bookmark Bloxwich Theatre connected to Bloxwich Library.

Canadian Singer/Songwriter Chuck Micallef is joining forces with his friends Pete Kelly, Tony Barrett and Enchante’ to help raise money in honour of his late wife Janet Griffiths Micallef, who lost her own battle with lung cancer three years ago at the University Hospital of North Staffordshire in Newcastle-under-Lyme.

Proceeds from the performance will be donated to Keele University Cancer Research, which is under the direction of Dr. Josep Sule’-Suso.  Dr. Sule’-Suso is one of the Oncologists that cared for Janet throughout her cancer treatment.

When Janet and Chuck found out that Cancer Research was being carried out between the University Hospital of North Staffordshire and Keele University, Janet asked Chuck to help raise funds for their local cause.

Event organiser Chuck Micallef said “My friends in the Bloxwich music community have all rallied around to make a special effort and offer their time to perform this coming Sunday afternoon. I am committed to continuing these events to honour Janet’s memory and my word I gave to her that it will be done.”

He went on “With your support we can help fund Cancer Research on a local level and enjoy life through live music in our community at the same time.”

Dr. Josep Sule’-Suso will be a guest speaker at the concert, which is supported by Bloxwich Library Forum, the local volunteer group which manages the theatre.

Tickets for the concert are just £5 and are available now at Bloxwich Library in Elmore Row, Bloxwich.  Doors open at 3pm and the music starts at 3.30pm.
