Britain’s Got Talent winner Lost Voice Guy will be one of the stars of a special charity concert being organised at Folly Farm in Pembrokeshire next month.
He’ll be appearing alongside Eurovision Song contest legends Brotherhood of Man.
The Rotary Club of Narberth and Whitland have nominated Cancer Research Wales to be the headline charity for their concert on Saturday, March 30 (7 pm) at the Follies Theatre, Folly Farm.
Narberth and Whitland Rotary Club President Tony Ensom selected Cancer Research Wales as his chosen charity for the concert.
He said: “Sadly, everyone knows someone who has been affected by cancer and it is very important to support the tireless efforts of Cancer Research Wales.”
Cancer Research Wales was founded in 1966 and is based at Velindre Hospital in Cardiff.
They receive no government funding and all funds raised are used in Wales, funding research at Velindre and Welsh Universities such as Cardiff and Swansea.
Someone in Wales is diagnosed with cancer every 30 minutes, and research is vital in aiming to provide early diagnosis, prevention and better treatment options.
The proceeds of the evening will also go to support the many endeavours of the Rotary Club during the year ahead, locally, nationally and internationally.
Lost Voice Guy was the 2018 Britain’s Got Talent winner. He has just returned to the UK after a well-received performance on the America’s Got Talent ‘All Winners Show’.
Brotherhood of Man won the 1976 Eurovision Song Contest. Their winning song, ‘Save Your Kisses For Me’, went on to sell five million copies worldwide and was followed by a string of hits by the group, who still boast the original ‘Save Your Kisses’ line-up.
Band member Nicky Stevens, (originally from Carmarthen) remains the only Welsh winner of the Eurovision Song Contest.
The band’s winning margin in Eurovision was a record – an achievement which still stands today.
Also appearing on the show will be Pembrokeshire Boogie Woogie and Rockabilly group ‘The Curveballs’.
Narberth and Whitland Rotary Club President Tony Ensom said: “It is all set to be a great night in aid of great charities and we very much hope for a great turnout to support us.”
