BoMac’nMe raise the roof for bandmate Andy

13 July 2016

A folk concert in Thornbury, Gloustershire has raised more than £5,200 for PCRF in memory of musician, Andy Graham.

Andy, a member of the folk group BoMac'nMe died in January, and bandmate Andrew “Mac” Cullen, his wife Lyne and friend Dave Derham organised the tribute gig to raise funds for research and celebrate Andy’s life.

More than 170 people came to the gig at The Castle School on June 25, with MoMac’nMe as the headline band and performances from local folk music acts, including Channel 35, another group that Andy regularly gigged with.

 “We have had so many people tell us what a great night they have had, and what a happy occasion it has been to raise money in memory of Andy,” said former bandmate Mac.

“When you are involved in organising something like this and you get such generous support from the local community and the business community you realise what a great place this is to live.

“I wish I could shake the hand of everyone who helped us make it such a wonderful night.”

He added: “We were also fortunate to receive support and donations from both the Thornbury Lions and NFU Mutual which we are truly grateful for, as it means more will be going to charity to fight pancreatic cancer.”

Speaking at the gig, Andy’s daughter Anna Graham said: “My Dad would have loved this evening as it had all the things that were important to him, family, friends, music and beer.”
