The Ted Mackney Fundraiser

Don't Miss Out
Time: Sunday 5.30pm
Cost: £5.00 in Advance | £7.00 on the Door

Join us for a night of fantastic music to raise funds for Ted’s treatment against Hodgkin Lymphoma.

Ted is a talented musician and actor and, with his wife Megan, works in care homes providing music therapy workshops for senior citizens and those suffering from dementia. Among the wonderful work that he does he is also step-father to Med, Tommy, Caitlin and father to Threat System bassist Dan Mackney.

After being diagnosed in December 2015 Ted has been bravely fighting his illness but, despite it being one of the most curable cancers, four different types of chemotherapy (including a trial drug), have not been successful and the cancer has now spread to his bone marrow.

The Ted Mackney Fundraiser along with the pre-existing GoFundMe campaign will go a long way to raising the money to give Ted access to a drug that is not available on the NHS called Nivolumab. This reduces (and in has some cases cured) this type of cancer, but we can only get Ted access to this with your help!

All the money from ticket sales will be going to Ted’s GoFundMe campaign, which you are also able to donate to directly right now!

We will be announcing the supporting acts over the next two months and we will keep you posted for when the ticket link is live.

For now though; put this date in your diary and don’t forget to donate and share the GoFundMe page.
