…a charity gig me and a few of my friends are organising for Our Lady’s children’s hospital Crumlin this Wednesday in The Twisted Pepper nightclub. We are hoping to raise a good bit of money and upcoming Dublin singer songwriter Scoops will be performing on the night
It’s Quizness Time (Well it will be in November.) I know you don’t usually do this but I was wondering if you could let Broadsheet readers know that It’s Quizness Time on November 13th for Arc Cancer Support Centre?
My mate Phil is doing a 12 hour Busk-athon this Sunday on Grafton Street for Pieta House. Plan is to sing over 180 songs straight with no repeats. If anyone would like to join in and sing or play a song with him or just support everyone is encouraged to come along!
His planned set list is here and his charity page is here.
Hard Times by Crystal Swing and the Working Together Community Choir, from Midleton, Co. Cork.
They launched a CD of the song last night in aid of Cancer Research, East Cork Rapid Response, St Vincent de Paul, Lions Club, Penny Dinners Cork and the Aimee Foley Treatment Fund.
Aimee Foley, 26, writes:
“Living in Ireland with a rare illness such Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome is very stressful and worrying at the best of times, especially when expert care lies outside the State. In order to experience remission after 6 years of suffering my best chance is at the Hypermobility Unit in at St John & St Elizabeth’s Hospital in London. Being chosen as a beneficiary of this very worthy charity CD means I will benefit directly and will assist me in my journey to receive vital care not available in Ireland.”
