CICRA would like to thank Ray Jackson, the Lindisfarne band, show organiser Barry McKay and all the Lindisfarne fans. Ticket holders received a free programme and were invited to make a donation to CICRA at the three Lindisfarne concerts held in Newcastle in December. In total including Gift Aid, the three concerts raised a magnificent sum of £16,664,42.
We would like to thank all the local CICRA members and their families who helped distribute the programmes at Newcastle City Hall, without them the event would not have been possible.
The funds raised will be spent wisely on our research programme. Research is helping to bring about better treatments and management and hopefully with enough research a cure will be found so that children and young people with the condition can look to their future knowing they will be well enough to fulfil their dreams.
