Mary Wilson Paralympian Fund Raiser

We have been asked to perform at this fundraiser event for Mary Wilson. Mary is a former Army Nurse who has lived with MS for the last 14 years. With no funding available for para-badminton athletes, Mary has so far used £18k of her own savings to play in international ranking tournaments and remain within the top six required to qualify for the Paralympics - more information on Mary is available in the link below.

The organisors of this event are the people who helped us make our 10th Anniversary event such a success. Alan Hogg managed the 5 volunteers who looked after the front of house, and Rene his wife, and friend Andy were our Stage Managers for the evening. After the success of our concert, they are sure they can bring along a large enough crowd to provide some much needed funding to Mary's cause.
