More great news from a very busy 2015.....
The 'thank you' concert on 27th June was absolutely amazing. I hoped you enjoyed it as much as me and my friends did. We raised over £700 at the concert which means that together with donations received online above my sponsorship target and ticket sales money, the total raised from this project for Birmingham Children's Hospital in memory of George is £2377.I handed over the cheque on 1st September. Please read my latest blog on BLOG PAGE to see where the money is going.
'Billy Vale and Friends’
UPDATE: JANUARY 2016 - I have sent off another £500 to the Hospital after doing some discos before Christmas and receiving more donations. Thank you!
