Shoot Pool in Aylesbury recently celebrated its five year anniversary with a full day of music, raising £576 for children and young people with cancer, and their families.
Sue Latham, owner of Shoot Pool, held the event in celebration of her son Seb James’ successful treatment with cancer. Seb was supported by a team of CLIC Sargent Young Person Social Workers and Nurses throughout his treatment.
With music acts all day provided by DreamChaser Entertainment and friends of Seb’s, there was entertainment to accompany the BBQ and raffle.
Sue Latham said: “After all the support we received from CLIC Sargent over the last couple of years, we wanted to give something back."
We’re delighted to help ensure children and young people can live their life to the full as much as possible.
"Without the support of our friends and family, we would not be able to help such a worthwhile cause that has provided so much to us over the last couple of years.”
Those in attendance were able to see Seb in action as he joined his band Callow Saints on stage. With music playing such a big part in his life before and after treatment, he was glad that he was able to share his talent and his story.
Seb James said: “Music is an extremely powerful tool in both providing a distraction from treatment and promoting the work of CLIC Sargent to those that have supported me and my family over the last two years.”
CLIC Sargent Fundraising Manager Ben Herbert said: “We are absolutely thrilled that Sue and Seb have made this wonderful contribution.
“We really appreciate the hard work and generosity that has gone into raising the pounds – every penny raised will help provide vital support for children and young people with cancer, and their families.”
