SUCCESSFUL CONCERT FOR MACMILLAN CANCER SUPPORT
The magnificent 400 year-old Tithe Barn at Meols Hall, Botanic Road, Southport (see photo) was the venue for a hugely successful concert on Tuesday June 18th in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support. We would like to thank the organisers (Val and Pam) and the Hesketh family for this opportunity.
The concert raised a total of £680 for Macmillan’s funds and one gentleman – a keen follower of jazz bands – told Pam The Teds were “the best jazz band I have ever heard”!
