Popular Gorleston band The Anyone’s are playing at the Cliff Hotel on Friday night.

The gig is helping to boost a disabled teenager’s dream of seeing his wrestling idols in the USA.

Lee Bishop from Gorleston suffers from Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, a life-limiting disease for which the prognosis is poor.

But the avid wrestling fan enjoys following the sport and playing with action figures - a passion which gives him a fun focus away from his deteriorating health.

For his family raising the £4000 needed to whisk him to California has become a race again time, with the money needed before he is too ill to travel.

His mother Maria Philpott has organised a range of events including a treat for music fans on Friday October 10.

The programme includes The Anyone’s and Three and A Half Hands and starts at 7pm with music until 12pm

Tickets, £5.

All proceeds going to Lees Dream.

Tickets can be bought by contacting Mrs Philpott on 07770384464 or 01493659699.
