We love sharing good causes and great events, and Rock and Raise coming up in July ticks all of those boxes.

Rock & Raise 17 is being staged on Saturday, July 1, and tickets have just gone on sale. The night will feature five live acts, including popular South Wales band The Woods, singer songwriter Chris Kelly & 60’s covers band The Word with more acts to be announced in the coming weeks.

Co-Organiser Chris Wood said: “A number of us have played locally for a long time, and we thought it would be great to bring a few acts together for one great night of music”.

“The Paget Rooms is something of an iconic venue in Penarth, and we hope people will turn out in force for a really good night of music, whilst raising money for Velindre Cancer Centre and LATCH,”

Deputy Head of Fundraising at Velindre, Kylie McKee said, “Money raised from our supporters is used to ensure the best possible support is offered to every patient, their families and carers dealing with cancer. It allows us to fund specialist nurses who are fundamental to a patient’s experience, implement projects to improve the physical environment for a patient, such as our gardens, the Family & Children’s Room and so much more”.

“We would like to say a huge thank you to the Rock & Raise team for their hard work and support in organising their fundraising event. We’re sure it’ll be a huge success and a great night!”

The Welsh Children’s Cancer Charity, LATCH solely supports children in Wales who suffer from cancer and leukaemia and their families.  This is achieved in a number of ways, from providing accommodation in the hospital to avoid family separation, financial grants, funding for key staff members, medical & play equipment and research.  Money raised from the Rock & Raise event will be used to buy a number of items ranging from a sterile procedure trolley to a blood pressure machine for The Paediatric Oncology Unit at the Children’s Hospital of Wales.

Tickets cost £15 and are available from, WWW.TICKETSOURCE.CO.UK/ROCKNRAISE17 or in person from Osmond Drakes, Opticians or David Baker Estate Agents in Penarth.
