The Gladstone Arms in Stowmarket was this year’s venue for Gig-at-the-Glad, a fun afternoon featuring some of the area’s best local musicians, raising money for children and young people with cancer.

Gig-at-the-Glad returns with a massive bang

Gig-at-the-Glad, formally known as Gig-in-the-Yard, returned to Stowmarket once again with a massive bang!

With its new venue, The Gladstone Arms, hosting the day, the musical event proved to be hugely popular and is set to have raised over £500 for CLIC Sargent.

A fun-filled day

The fun filled day featured some of the best local acts including Sun of Elvis, The Stowmarket Strummers and many more! The day was very entertaining, with The Mayor of Stowmarket coming along to show his support. There was also a raffle that had lots of fantastic prizes, including a signed Ipswich town football club t-shirt.

Paul Ekpenyong and his wife Annette, along with their friends Allen and Wendy Winchester have organised the event in aid of CLIC Sargent for the last three years and have raised a fantastic £4,000 for CLIC Sargent so far! 

Mr Ekpenyong said: “We really enjoyed organising the gig once again for CLIC Sargent. A jolly good afternoon was had by all. We are very grateful to our sponsors including The Gladstone Arms, Mystical Forest UK, who offered their support and the many others who donated raffle prizes for the event.

Wonderful contribution

CLIC Sargent Fundraising Manager Emma Taylor said: “We are absolutely thrilled that Paul and everyone involved once again chose to make a  wonderful contribution towards CLIC Sargent.

"We really appreciate all the  hard work and generosity that has gone in to raising the money and every penny raised will help provide vital support for children and young people with cancer and their families.”
