Rainhill soprano Lynn Jones will be taking to the stage as she headlines the concert ‘Precious Moments’ in aid of Willowbrook Hospice at St Thomas Church, Eccleston on Friday 28 September at 7.30pm.
Lynn will be performing a packed programme of songs from the shows and classical favourites and will be supported by the Aughton Male Voice Choir and singer and guitarist Alex Roberts, as well as rising star Louie Gray who recently starred in Her Benny at the Royal Court, Liverpool.
Cancer survivor Lyn says: “Over the past 8 years I’ve gone through several treatments for cancer, the most recent being in April this year when I had an operation at Aintree Hospital for a growth in my neck which was related to my original diagnosis in 2009 of ovarian cancer. I’m currently attending the day therapy sessions at Willowbrook which are a complete inspiration to me! People who haven’t been to the hospice often think it’s going to be depressing but it’s anything but! The staff and all the volunteers are amazing and I’ve met some fantastic people there as well as enjoying the craft classes, massages and relaxation sessions.”
Lynn continues: “It’s the 8th year that I’ve organised a concert for Willowbrook and every year we’ve had a packed house. I love singing and it’s great that I can use my talents to help raise much needed funds for the hospice.”
Nicky Saunders, Head of Fundraising at the hospice said: “Lynn is a fantastic supporter of Willowbrook and over the years has helped to raise thousands of pounds to support our work. It’s thanks to people like Lynn that we can continue to care and support our patients and their families.”
Tickets for the concert are cost £6 and are available from Lynn on 07754 773089, Willowbrook-The Living Well on 01744 453798 or from St Thomas Church.
