Fellas in fine voice to raise research funds in memory of Rob

Evesham Editorial 3rd Mar, 2023   0

MAYOR of Pershore Coun Matthew Winfield was in the audience at the White Horse Inn in the town to hear the A Cappella Fellas of Vale Harmony sing for his chosen charity, Brain Tumour Research.

The event was organised by Pershore resident Lesley Faulkner in memory of her husband Rob who died in February 2021 six weeks after being diagnosed with the aggressive brain cancer Glioblastoma.

“We were delighted to sing in memory of Rob and raise money for the Mayor’s charity, “said Colin Pemberton, one of the A Cappella Fellas.

“The organisation Brain Tumour Research says tumours kill more children and adults under the age of 40 than any other cancer yet historically just one per cent of the national spend on cancer research has been allocated to this devastating disease.”

Some of the proceeds went to Vale Harmony’s charity, St Richard’s Hospice where Rob had received palliative care.
