SOS for band at charity ball

AN SOS has gone out to local bands to see if someone can step in and rescue a charity concert.

The band due to play at the Celebrating Life Charity Ball have unfortunately had to pull out leaving organisers Delia Swann and friends needing to find a last-minute replacement.

The ball is a fundraising ‘thank you’ to the Neurosciences Critical Care Unit at Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge whose staff helped to save Delia’s life.

Delia (28), of Marshland St James, defied the odds after suffering severe head injuries in a horrific car accident in 2009.

Her survival was down to the care and treatment she received.

She was in a deep coma for several weeks and all her family could do was wait and watch anxiously as doctors and staff helped Delia to make a miraculous recovery.

The ball is to raise money for the unit and is being held on July 7 at Wisbech Town Football ground in Lynn Road.

Delia’s husband, Russell, explained the tickets have now been printed with ‘live band’ and they need to find a replacement.

The ball is from 7pm to midnight for adults and Russell is hoping kind-hearted Citizen readers will be able to help.

“We are appealing for another band to come forward,” said Russell.

There is some money to pay the band but what would be ideal is if the group would be prepared to donate their services for the night.

If you are in the music business and can help Delia out, call Russell on 07921 152985 or Delia on 07921 151159.
