Enjoy an eclectic mix of musical offerings while helping to raise funds for life-saving research on Saturday.

Ed Jones, 41, from Milton Keynes organizes an annual concert at Shenley Leisure Centre to raise money for Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research to help beat blood cancer.

He was driven to start fund-raising after being diagnosed with Chronic Myeloid Leukaemia in 2006.

Ed said: “I organise the concerts every year because I want to give something back to the charity that has done so much to help my treatment in a lively and uplifting evening for all lovers of live music.

“Raising money for Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research means better treatments and cures for patients with blood cancer.

“The equation is simple, the more money raised, equals more lives saved.”

The concert is sponsored by Sainsburys Local, in Shenley Church End, and will feature Breathless, Roadworn, Sophie Turner and The Enigmas.

Money raised will help fund research into better treatments and cures for leukaemia, lymphoma and myeloma.

Yvonne Dickson, Head of Regional Fund-raising at Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research, said: “The event is a fantastic effort.”

The concert begins at 7 (with free admission) and will also include a raffle and auction.

Music will continue until midnight.
