Businesses make concert a hit

17 July 2014

THREE businesses from Wigan and Leigh have donated £3,000 to make the Voices for Hospice Concert a hit.

Cartridge World in Pemberton, Asda in Leigh and Stephensons Solicitors, which has offices in both Wigan and Leigh, have all donated £1,000 each to Wigan and Leigh Hospice to support the concert on Saturday, July 19th.

Former singer at the Riverside Club and Wigan legend John Martin is among the five acts which will appear on stage at Robin Park Arena.

Hosted by BBC North West Tonight's Dave Guest the evening also features performances from classically trained singer Janette Monroe, swing singer Scott Chapman and Robbie Williams tribute act Lee Michaels.

After keeping the audience dancing until late in 2013 motown and soul band Street Level are also returning to the arena.

Shaun O'Sullivan, franchise owner at Cartridge World on Ormskirk Road, said: "We're pleased to support a local charity which is an important part of the Wigan and Leigh community and we're really looking forward to the concert."

Maxine Armstrong, Fundraising and Lottery Manager at the Hospice, said: "As a charity we rely on support from our local businesses and we are very grateful to Cartridge World, Asda and Stephensons for their continued support. A special mention must also go to LeisureTec UK Ltd for their help in staging the concert.
"We are fortunate to have secured another tremendous line-up of professional local artists who will make it an evening not to be missed."
