THE second Survivors Jazz Band (Stars with Scars) charity concert will be held in Claverham in June.

The group was set up to raise funds for the British Heart Foundation and Cancer Research UK as all of the musicians are survivors of heart disease or cancer.

Proceeds from the first concert last year and the subsequent sale of CD’s raised £725 each for the charities.

Following the success of last year’s event, the band has agreed to play at the second concert which takes place at Claverham Village Hall at 7.30pm on May 21. There will be a bar, coffee and food available.

A spokesman said: “The fact that there will be another concert in 2011 is testament to the band’s commitment to two very worthy causes and it is hoped to raise even more as a result of this second concert.”

Tickets, priced £10, are available by sending a stamped and addressed envelope, together with a cheque made out to Gzazz Promotions to 11 Westmarch Way, Weston-super-Mare, BS22 7JY.

Anyone who cannot attend on the night but would like to donate money is welcome to send a cheque to the same address.

CDs from the first concert, called Alive & Jazzin’, are available from 01934 527197.
