Cancer UK Charity Gig at the William IV

As a photographer one thing I love doing is helping charities to promote themselves and raise money for good causes.  On Sunday 18th May 2014 Light Memories UK attended a Cancer UK charity gig at the William IV in Truro to photograph the coming together of several well know musicians from all over the country.  They donated their time and costs to raise money for a cause that has personally effected some members of the band.  The band called 'The Wings Of Love' was formed especially for the charity gig and consisted of Malcolm Rushton (vocals), Martin Dove (bass), Colin Hannah (guitar), Gerry Gillard (guitar), Mike Harwood (guitar), Larry Topa (keys) and Alan Eden (drums).

The band BooBoo also provided an impressive performance for the crowd.  This new local band comprises of Carrie Lester (vocals), Mike Harwood (guitar), Larry Topa (keys), Chris Johnson (bass) and Ralph Roberts (drums).  They are available for events and gigs etc so have a look at their Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/booboocornwall

There was also a fantastic solo spot from Paul Eustace who played some numbers from his band 'The Viewers'.  Ralph Roberts drummer of the band BooBoo said "Most of us go way, way back, 30 years or more and this was the first get together in as many years so it was a real pleasure.  Everyone involved is thrilled with the photos you took and your continued support."

It was an incredible evening of music entertainment, a night to remember!  The whole pub was bouncing from beginning to end with more and more people coming in off the street when they heard the music.  At the end of the night £300 was raised for Cancer UK!
