A unique evening of music at Somerleyton Hall is taking place on Thursday 1st September 2016 in support of prostate cancer treatment at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital (NNUH).

The evening has been organised by Andrew McCullough, a professional clarinettist and former patient of the NNUH. Having received treatment for prostate cancer himself, earlier this year, he now wants to raise awareness and funds for the hospital charity.

Andrew says: “If you visit the Colney Unit in the N&N Hospital you will see the huge numbers of patients being treated by the calm, highly professional doctors, radiologists and nurses. The equipment they use is running from early in the morning until late in the evening, six days a week. I felt that additional money would enhance the care patients are given and raise awareness of this condition and the need for men to be vigilant with their health.”

“I am so grateful for the treatment and support I received and I now want more people in Norfolk to understand about prostate cancer and help do something about it at this amazing hospital.”

Lord and Lady Somerleyton have kindly agreed to hold a fundraising concert at Somerleyton Hall. The musicians are Andrew McCullough (clarinet), Angela Brun (soprano) and Will Fergusson (piano).

Dr Tom Roques, oncology consultant at NNUH who will be at the event, said: “The support we receive from patients through the hospital charity means we can enhance the world class treatments offered at NNUH. We are delighted at the support offered by Lord and Lady Somerleyton for this fundraising event.”

British adventurer, writer and television presenter Bear Grylls has added his support for the event. He said: “Together, we can beat cancer. We have got to keep going and never give up. Thank you all for supporting this cause, and Andy you are an inspiration to many. All of you, have an amazing evening at Somerleyton.”

Tickets for the event are £50 each, available by telephoning the fundraising department at NNUH on 01603 287107 or email
