Thu 17 (Kendal Town Hall) & Fri 18 Mar (Kendal Leisure Centre) | 7pm | £20 per ticket
TWO charity concerts featuring a top South African vocal talent aim to raise £30,000 for Cumbria's flood victims.
The events, taking place on Thursday March 17 and Friday 18, see Cape Town singer Lauren-Lee Bock performing at two venues in the town. Lauren is making a real name for herself in her home country and this is fantastic opportunity to see a supremely talented vocalist in action, with superb support from her full band.
A graduate of the Cape Music Institute, she has been performing live across her home nation, and made appearances on regional TV.
The concert will also feature an auction of prestigious donations from local businesses and even Mayor of London Boris Johnson.
Organiser David Gummers, from Ulverston, says: “When I was looking out of my Window in Levens Village at the damage that Storm Desmond has caused. I knew I had to do something to help – while I am not great with a brush and shovel, I do manage a couple of artists, one of whom would be perfect to do a charity concert like this.
“My aim is to raise over £30,000 and with a little luck much more than that. When I spoke to Lauren she immediately said “yes”, and after she had seen the pictures of the floods she said “You know David, I am going to bring smiles back to their faces with my music and some joy back into their shattered lives.”
“We are going to have an exclusive spectacular free raffle which is just for people in the audience whose homes were flooded. We will put some smiles on your faces”
The raffle features a tremendous range of unique, one-off – not to mention high-value items! Including:
– Brand new Vauxhall car from dealer Arnold Clark
– Downing Street booklet signed by the Prime MInister
– Signed book by Mayor of London Boris Johnson
– £2,000 worth of furniture from Stollers
The first concert will take place at Kendal Town Hall, before moving on to the Leisure Centre's Westmorland Hall the following evening.
All the proceeds are going to Cumbria Foundation Flood Fund.
