We're In Wally's Corner - Fri 20th Jan

Cancer is a bastard, and sometimes even after kicking its ass, it comes back for another round. A good friend of mine is currently raising money for the St James Institute for Oncology in Leeds after finding out that her cousin James (known to everyone as 'Wally') has to go in for yet another gruelling round of chemo - the second time he's having to battle cancer in the past two years.

To raise money and awareness, Zoe (the good friend) has taken a lot of her own time and effort devising the most amazing electro/house night for James before he has to go in for treatment. "Wally's Fundraising Shindig" will serve the dual purpose of raising money for St James' Hospital, but also looks to be an absolute belter of a night, with DJs actually having to be declined set times due to popular demand. It's truly amazing to see so many people dropping everything to go and help a friend in need.

So, the night then.
When? Friday 20th Jan (this Friday)
How much? £6 on the door
Where? Audio, Batley, W. Yorks

Zoe was overwhelmed with offers to play by some great local DJs, and the line-up is a total northern treat.

Wally's Shindig will be a northern electro/house night to remember - it's £6 on the door, and all of the money taken on the door on the night will be donated to the Yorkshire Cancer Centre. As if you needed further persuasion, there'll be all sorts of awesome stuff going on as well as the music, the thing I'm most pissed off about missing is the raffle because there are some sick prizes being donated!

This is the fundraising arm of St James Institute of Oncology, where James will be receiving his treatment. See website below for more information on the charity the money is going to, and the great work that they do for those affected by cancer in the Yorkshire area.


If you can't make it on the night, but would like to donate to the fundraising, please go to the justgiving page on the following link:

If you can make it down, please do, it'll be an ace night and you'll also be helping raise money for a fantastic cause.

Cheers guys! Fuck you, cancer!
