A WESTON woman is hosting a special concert in aid of Weston Hospicecare after describing the centre as 'invaluable'.

Kirsty Moore, aged 26, is hosting Weston Aid at Hornets Rugby Club on May 23. Kirsty wanted to show her appreciation for the care her mother Lisa Osborne, who suffers from terminal cancer, receives there each week. Lisa attends weekly day hospice sessions 
at the Uphill site, free of charge.

Kirsty said: “Mum was diagnosed with breast cancer in July 2006. After having a mastectomy and chemo treatment we were given the all-clear, but in May 2014 we received the shocking news that mum’s cancer had returned. This time it had spread to her lung and bones which meant it had become terminal.

“We want to make every moment count with Mum, as we are unsure of how long we have left with her.”

“We have been so grateful for the hospice, the nurses and the support they have given us. It’s an incredibly difficult time and to have such a calm and reassuring influence in your life is invaluable. But it costs money to provide free care, so we wanted to put our experience and musical links to good use and put on a concert to raise cash.”

Local band The Six Machine will headline the gig, with support from Des Henly’s Singers and Strummers. Gig-goers will also be able to win top prizes in the raffle and bid for exclusive items in an auction.

Tickets to Weston Aid are available from the Hornets Rugby Club in Hutton Moor Road, Weston Hospicecare in Uphill and by emailing
