A Party for Chlay
Unit 9, Old Wolverton, March 3
Silver Tongue Bandoliers, Project Noise, Billy Nomad & The Common Army and Kayner are joining forces for a charity bash at MKs newest live music hub, to raise funds for a singer-songwriter who has been managing a number of diagnosed conditions - including Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome, Post Tachycardic Syndrome and Multi Chemical Sensitivity.
The seriousness of these conditions means her immune system has been depleted.
Chlay does have the chance of medical help though - for a fee.
Her system can effectively be re-booted to help her body regenerate its own immune system. And you can help.
By taking a ticket for the show, you get to have a good time and help Chlay to get better.
