Mam Tour top the bill for Christmas fundraiser

Popular Sheffield band Mam Tour will be the headline act for a special evening of live entertainment in memory of St Luke’s Hospice Olwen Kelly.

Olwen was a patient at St Luke’s when she lost her fight against cancer last December.

Since then husband Mark – a driver with Supertram - has embarked on a series of fundraising challenges, including a 250-mile walk which raised more than £3,000.

“I just felt I owed St Luke’s so much and that I had to do something to support them,” said Mark.

“It’s the little things you remember the most, like when Olwen said she liked being able to see the birds in the garden from her room and within 10 minutes a nurse came back with a little bird feeder to fit on the outside of the window.

“They didn’t just support Olwen, they were there for me and our son Adam and when Adam’s partner Lois was having to work remotely, they even provided her with a room.”

Mark’s latest fundraiser, with Mam Tour topping the bill and with support from fellow musician Kenny Francis, will be held at Sheffield’s Philadelphia Function Suite in Martin Street, Upperthorpe, on December 15 from 7pm.

The evening will also include a live auction and raffle and tickets, which cost £5, are available now at Mam Tour
