Charity Challenge Finalist Organises Live Music Event in Aid of CancerCare

on Monday, 30 November -0001.

Local musician David Hanmer has been very busy indeed. Not only has he been preparing to perform at the Furness Building Society Charity Challenge Final in a few weeks’ time but he’s also had time to organise a special fundraising event for CancerCare, staging a night of live music at The Trimpell in Morecambe on Friday 24th. David was joined on stage by local acts including Faye Marie, 4th Time Lucky, and The Natives.

“It was a great night, the place was absolutely packed. We managed to raise £165 for CancerCare! It was also a good warm up opportunity for the Charity Challenge next month. I’m really looking forward to it – I still haven’t decided what I’m going to sing but I’m feeling pretty confident. I’m going to win it for CancerCare!”


David performs at the final of the Furness Building Society Charity Challenge at the Lancaster Grand Theatre on February 8th. Tickets for the final are £5 each and are available through Lancaster Grand Theatre box office Tel. 01524 64695 or by visiting

Thirteen finalists will compete for prizes of £1,000 for first place, £750 for second place, and £500 for third place, with £100 for each of the other finalists so that all of the charities represented on stage will benefit.
