Brighton artist Hobbie Stuart is headlining one of two events that are being held to raise the final pounds for a five-year-old boy’s life-changing operation.
Five year old Oliver Poinsignon needed £52,000 so he can run, jump and climb like every other little boy. The youngster from Ashurst, near Steyning, has cerebral palsy and struggles to get around because of extremely tight and painful muscles in his legs. That total has now been raised.
But the fundraising continues for other families in similar situations to Oliver’s, through the charity The Tree of Hope.
Guy Lloyd, Drivetime Presenter at Brighton’s Juice 107.2, has organised two events to help reach the target.
The first event takes place at Emporium, London Road, Brighton on Saturday March 15th. It’s a family-friendly event aimed at the 3-10 year olds. There will be a Circus Workshop, temporary tattooing and stand up comedy from Tom Veryzer and Tommy Tickle. Adults are just £5 and children are free. 2-4pm and tickets available from www.emporiumbrighton.com
The second event is a night of live music at Concorde 2, Brighton on Saturday March 22nd from 7pm. Headlined by Brighton boy Hobbie Stuart, one of the most exciting new artists of 2014, with support from The Watermelons and Staniford. 14 and over event, doors open at 7pm and tickets available atwww.concorde2.co.uk
Oliver’s dad Jean-Marc Poinsignon, from Brighton said: “Guy Lloyd and Juice 107.2 have been amazing at supporting Oliver’s fundraising campaign but the fight continues for many others. Thanks to all.”
Guy Lloyd, Presenter at Brighton’s Juice 107.2 said: “I want to do my bit with the contacts we have at the radio station to put on a night to remember and to raise the funds for a very special charity.”
