Newlife Foundation’s “Up Close and Acoustic” concert has raised almost £3,000.
Over 150 people packed into the Robin 2 arena in Bilston to see a host of the Midland’s finest musical acts take the stage. Wolverhampton’s Scott Matthews topped the bill, performing his very first concert of the year. Stourbridge’s Ian Parker, folk duo Lucy and the Rambler and rock ‘n’ roller Steve Gibbons also performed
Matthews, winner of the prestigious Ivor Novello award was delighted to be a part of Newlife’s inaugural gig.
“The Newlife Foundation does some vital work for kids who have not had the best of starts in life” he said.
“I am really happy to have been a part of this event, it is very important to raise awareness of the Foundation and the work it does.”
100% of the money raised from the concert will be spent on providing vital equipment and provisions for severely disabled children across the West Midlands. If you missed the concert but would like to donate go to – www.newlifecharity.co.uk/donate
