Great Yarmouth Brass concert for Marie Curie charity
PUBLISHED: 21:42 09 February 2012
GREAT Yarmouth Brass will be staging their first public performance at Christchurch Great Yarmouth on Februray 19 at 2pm with all profits going to Marie Curie Cancer Care UK.
Great Yarmouth Brass musical director Colin Swaep will be conducting the afternoon’s concert spanning Broadway shows to the Classical Light Cavalry Overture.
The charity to benefit from this concert has been chosen by Stuart Philpot, one of the founder members of Great Yarmouth Brass, who will be taking part in a 320 mile London to Paris cycle ride in April.
Dingles Toyota Motor Group, of Lowestoft, Attleborough, and Norwich are supporting Stuart in the challenge, by providing transport to and from London and so far Stuart has raised over £1,100, already sent to Marie Curie.
Stuart is taking part in the challenge in memory of his father-in-law Herbert Bloomfield, who in 2001, passed away after being diagnosed with a brain tumour.
The support available from organisations such as Marie Curie Cancer Care during this time was invaluable to the family.
You can follow Stuart’s progress on facebook or Twitter @stu.philpot.
Tickets for the Charity Challenge Concert at £5 are available online at www.gybrass.org.uk, via 01493 844242 or 01502 741205 or from the Christchurch Coffee shop any weekday between 10-2pm.
