Springsteen tribute band at Sitwell fundraiser for poorly boy (8)
East Street Band

AN EVENING of live music will be held this weekend to raise money to fund an experience wish-list for an eight-year-old boy diagnosed with a life-limiting condition. 

Sam Rocks at Sitwell Golf Club will raise money for Sunnyside boy Sam Evans, who was diagnosed with a neurodegenerative condition known as Juvenile Batten disease last December. 

The event will feature live music from Bruce Springsteen tribute band East Street Band, ‘rockeoke’, a fun photo booth, a raffle and more on Friday, October 11, from 7.30pm to 11.30pm.

Sam is already losing his sight and overtime will suffer a loss of movement and speech. 

The money raised on the night will help pay for a wish-list of memorable trips for the youngster before his condition deteriorates. 

Tickets cost £10, which includes a pie and peas supper.

Contact mum Natalie Evans for tickets on 07387 187419, or visit the Sam Rocks event page on Facebook.
