GO On Tour, a group of performing pensioners are grateful for the support of BB4B – but not as much as the Rosemere Cancer Foundation.
The ‘Golden Oldies,’ a song and dance troupe which includes BB4B organisers Keith and Ruth Bradshaw, staged their third annual charity concert in aid of Rosemere at St Andrews Church, Leyland recently.
With admission donations on the day, the overall total raised, bringing much needed funds for our local cancer charity, was £752.37.
The afternoon of fun and fundraising included an ‘awesome’ raffle with almost 50 prizes, mostly donated by BB4B members. Some also offered money donations. It was a collective effort and a great example of the mutual support and generosity of the businesses in our group.
Amy Hilton, area fund-raising co-ordinator for Central Lancashire and the Fylde, added: “This was a magnificent total and a great afternoon was had by all. As ever, we are dependent on volunteers in the community for their support in so many different ways. Once again, at Rosemere, we are extremely grateful to the GO On Tour team and their supporters.”
Councillor Mary Green, Mayor of south Ribble, added: “We had a wonderful afternoon, I truly didn’t know what to expect but the whole show was great. I enjoyed the GOs so much, I have booked them to perform at my own charity concert in Lostock Hall next month.”
