Old-school Garage night to raise the roof and funds for cancer-equipment appeal

A GARAGE music event is putting the ‘spotlight’ on helping fundraise £600,000 to buy state-of-the-art radiotherapy equipment to improve the lives of patients at Southend Hospital.

The night of music takes place on Saturday 13 May at N Dance in Southend, from 8pm – 2am, featuring a line-up of talent spinning the best in garage music.

It’s all headed up by the legendary MC Kye, with blistering guest performances from Funky SX’s DJ Andy Unique and Sandie Soraiya.

All proceeds from the event will benefit Southend Hospital Charitable Foundation’s Spotlight Radiotherapy Appeal, with those attending supporting a great cause while enjoying a night of energetic and uplifting music.

It’s all been organised by Foundation Trustee, Emma Cox, who is more used to organising black tie balls, but this is set to be a real blast!

She said: “Garage music is all about bringing people together and creating a positive energy, and we’re excited to channel that energy into something that will make a real difference for those undergoing radiotherapy treatment at Southend Hospital.”

Proceeds from the evening will directly benefit the charitable foundation’s latest appeal, the Spotlight Radiotherapy Appeal which aims to raise £600,000 to  purchase Surface Guided Radiation Therapy equipment. 

The equipment will make the hospital one of only a few in the country that are able to offer this state-of-the-art radiotherapy delivery system and promises to dramatically transform the experience of those undergoing radiotherapy treatment at Southend Hospital.

Tickets for the evening are priced at £20 each and include entry and a welcome drink. Tickets are available from the charity office at Southend hospital on 01702 385337, by emailing mse.charity@nhs.net) or direct from the ‘Charity Garage Night’ Facebook page.
