Yorkshire Cancer Research

In collaboration with our friends and fellow noise-mongers at Beat:Cancer we’re supporting Yorkshire Cancer Research, who help people in and around Yorkshire avoid, survive and cope with cancer. Working in partnership with researchers, scientists and clinicians, the NHS, Public Health bodies and other charities, Yorkshire Cancer Research make life-changing improvements to cancer outcomes.

Some of the Samaritans crew from the Bradford branch are planning to attend the event, so you can chat to them about the invaluable work which they do. Providing emotional support to anyone in emotional distress, struggling to cope, or at risk of suicide throughout the United Kingdom and Ireland, we think they’re a really important organisation that deserve our fundraising support.

Festival regular and friend Simon Barber is again going to do the Edinburgh Ironman Triathlon, this year in aid of Samaritans, with with the support of his employer the Royal Bank of Scotland who will match his sponsorship fund. He has some scores to settle and a finish-time he wants to smash this year after some spectacularly rough weather last time. GOOD LUCK Simon!

Please show Simon and the Samaritans your support:

Guide Dogs

Last but by no means least, we are continuing our longstanding support for the Guide Dogs Association. Our unofficial mascot JJ will be in attendance for you to fuss over, and his human John-E-Smoke will be on stage with his band Flesh Eating Foundation.
