ELVIS EXPERIENCE COMES TO THE AID OF DISABLED CHILDREN IN BIRMINGHAM

If you want to be ‘All Shook Up’, then ‘C’mon Everybody’ and head over to Tyseley and District Working Men’s Club for an Elvis Experience – and help provide essential disability equipment for children in Birmingham.

The Elvis Experience will ‘Rip It Up’ on Saturday 27 September, featuring Mark Green, a lifelong fan of ‘the King’. He is appearing in aid of Newlife Foundation for Disabled Children which is the staff-elected charity for Central England Co-operative.

Emma Williamson, trading manager at the Central England Co-operative store in Gospel Lane, Acocks Green, said: “Mark is a friend of mine and he has offered to help us raise money for Newlife and benefit local disabled children. His act is well known across Birmingham and he has a lot of fans in the Tyseley area. Myself and all the staff at the Gospel Lane store will be putting on our ‘Hi-Heel Sneakers’ – and we look forward to seeing lots of customers and Mark’s fans at the fund-raiser.”

Mark will be proving he doesn’t have a ‘Wooden Heart’ by performing a string of hits in two 45-minute sets, featuring Elvis songs from the 1950s and his Las Vegas years.

Since the charity partnership began in May 2012 more than £520,000 has been raised for Newlife Foundation, which has so far helped fund 266 pieces of vital disability equipment for children in the retailer’s trading area.

So if you would like to be a ‘Goodluck Charm’ and help fund specialist equipment for disabled children in the Birmingham area, you can buy tickets – £5 each – for the show on Saturday 27 September from the Gospel Lane store.
