More than £1,200 raised at Droitwich Lions' charity concert

A SELL-OUT charity concert organised by Droitwich Lions Club raised more than £1,200 for good causes.

The event on Friday at Droitwich Working Men’s Club featured renowned covers band The Reflections and talented young magician Charlie Robinson.

They entertained an enthusiastic audience who came to support the concert in aid of Brain Tumour Research and other Lions charities.

Lions Club British Isles have partnered with Brain Tumour Research (BTR) on a four-year project to raise £1million for Brain Tumour Research.

Funding will give BTR a laboratory – 20 per cent will go to equipment, 80 will fund the research.

Lion Fran Stary – Lion Brain Tumour Research Project Lead for Lions Club British Isles National Project, sold over £200 worth of special badges in addition to the money raised from ticket sales and the well-supported raffle.

Lion Fran said: “It was fun to see people on their fee dancing the night away to what was fantastic music from a superb band.

“Massive thanks to Droitwich Lions Club for holding the event and to all those who attended and generously gave to a great cause.”

Lion President Carole Moseley said “Once again the people of Droitwich have supported our fundraising effort with their usual generosity.

“We are very grateful for that support.”

One audience member said they had a wonderful evening.

“What a fantastic band and the magician was brilliant, well done all of you.”
