Newstead Brass and Newstead Youth Band Charity Concert Friday 26th October at 8.00 pm. The Newstead Brass and Newstead Youth Bands will perform a charity concert at the Great Hall in Nottingham University, Beeston, Nottingham, for the Maggie’s Cancer Centres on Friday 26th October at 8.00 pm. The concert is in support of cornet player from Newstead Brass, Teresa White, who was diagnosed with peritoneal cancer in May this year. This is a very rare form of cancer affecting the lining of the stomach. She has been treated with chemotherapy and has had a good response and is in remission. Teresa has supported this charity since before her cancer diagnosis and is organising other events as well as this concert to raise money to build a Maggie’s Centre in Nottingham. Maggie’s Cancer Caring Centres provides a place of support to anyone affected by cancer – a place to feel angry, sad, bewildered and somewhere that people can access professional support as they build a life beyond cancer. All of the services are free and funded by the charity. During her illness and treatment, Teresa has managed to perform at all concerts and contests throughout the spring and summer, but was disappointed to miss the Grand Shield which was the day after her first chemotherapy treatment. Tickets for the concert will cost £5 and are available from Mike Allcock from Newstead Band, telephone 0115 9680563 or Emma Critchley, Fundraising Coordinator for Maggie’s Nottingham on 0115 8718693, or available on the door. Teresa would like to invite all friends from brass bands to come along and support the bands for this very worthy cause.
