About Teenage Cancer Trust
We know how damaging it is to take a young person away from their everyday life, their friends, their environment, their family – and put them in a cancer ward with small children or older people.
Young people have a much better chance in their fight against cancer if they are treated by teenage cancer experts, in an environment tailored to their needs. So we’re working every day to make that happen.
We don’t believe that teenagers should have to stop being teenagers, just because they have cancer. So we fund and build specialist units for young people in NHS hospitals. Our units bring teenagers with cancer together with loads of new friends of their own age so they can support each other.
Alongside all of this is a medical team of teenage cancer specialists who pool knowledge to create a body of expertise that’s second to none. They’re backed up by our Nurse Consultants who provide clinical care, develop research, deliver professional education and ensure that standards remain as high as possible.
Teenage Cancer Trust units aren’t like ordinary cancer wards. Everything about them has been designed to give teenagers the very best chance of a positive outcome. We want every young person with cancer in this country to have that chance.
Teenage Cancer Trust aims to build enough units so that by 2012, every teenager in the UK will have access to the specialist support they provide
About the Counterfeit Blues Brothers
CBB are a Blues Brothers tribute band based in Lisburn. A message from the band:
“We're so glad to see so many of you lovely people here tonight, and we would especially like to welcome all those who have chosen to join us here on this gig listing at this time.
The Counterfeit Blues Brothers are on a mission to bring Soul and Blues music to the masses and keep the spirit of Jake and Elwood Blues going strong. Our 2 hour Rhythm and Blues revue is filled with classics from the Blues Brothers stage show and films along with a host of our own soul favourites, guaranteed to have you shaking your tailfeathers.
We do sincerely hope you'll all enjoy this gig, and please remember people, that no matter who you are, and what you do to live, thrive and survive, there are still some things that make us all the same. You, me, them, everybody.
About Rab McCullough
Like so many of his peers, Rab McCullough grew up in Belfast in the 70’s sharing the stage with such luminaries as Jimi Hendrix, Van Morrison and Rory Gallagher.
Sadly, in an all too familiar story, his career was cut short, partly due to the worst years of the Troubles and partly due to the punk explosion. It seemed that musical competence was out of fashion and Rab returned to the building sites, working as a scaffolder.
Fortunately for us he kept his hand in, and a trip to Memphis, Tennessee saw a re-awaking of his love for the blues. He’s been playing Belfast for over ten years now and his weekly shows attract a regular crowd of blues devotees.
