POPULAR duo Lady and the Sax are tuning up for a special gig at Kidderminster Sports and Social Club following a sell-out concert there earlier this year.

Sax player Sam Pagett and singer Chloe Barry hope to entertain a full house again at the Chester Road North venue on Friday June 29 and raise money for Kidderminster Cricket Club’s junior section and a dad’s £10,000 fundraising appeal for Leukaemia Care.

Kris Griffin, who six-year-old son is a junior cricketer at the club, is campaigning to raise the money in recognition of the care and treatment he has received since being diagnosed with chronic myeloid leukaemia 10 years ago.

The 43-year-old marketing director, who lives in Kidderminster, has become a passionate supporter of Worcester-based Leukaemia Care, a charity of which he is now a trustee.

When KCC junior section chairman Sarah Beadsworth heard about his #Kris10 campaign, she and the club were quick to offer help.

She said: “I knew Kris a little through work and was delighted when he turned up at the club with his son but was shocked to discover he had leukaemia and when he told me about his campaign, I knew the club would want to support it.

“Lady and the Sax are brilliant, so talented and entertaining - I know it will be a great night and they’ll have everyone up dancing.”

The duo performs a mix of classic rock ‘n’ roll, swing, blues and jazz/pop from the 1950’s to the present day and the fun will start at 8.30pm.

Tickets, priced £8, are available at the club or by contacting Mrs Beadsworth on 07841 502535.
