Joseph Foote Fundraiser

It was an absolute honour to be asked back for the 2nd time to perform at the Joseph Foote Fundraising Ball in Birmingham on Saturday 5th March

The event, which raises money for research into brain tumours, was held at the Birmingham Hilton Metropole Hotel and attracted more than 800 guests.

Evening highlights included performances by Britain’s Got Talent star Connie Talbot

Take That Tribute Band ‘The Greatest’

X-Factor songstress Treyc Cohen

Plus of course MADHEN!

The charity was founded in 2001 by local entrepreneur Andy Foote whose son, Joseph, was diagnosed with a rare ependymoma malignant brain tumour, aged just 2. Despite multiple surgeries & treatments the cancer claimed Joseph’s life in 2007, following an inspirational seven year battle.

The memory of Joseph continues to be the driving force behind the Charity Ball, which helps to fund potentially life-changing research. This year’s event alone managed to raise over £150,000.

Andy Foote said:

” I am always so amazed and inspired by the level of support we receive year on year and it gives me great comfort to know that Joseph is still in everyone’s hearts and minds.”

It was a long day but for a great cause.

Luckily we had the pleasure of Bella’s personalised MADHEN cupcakes to keep us going after an early afternoon sound check as we didn’t get onstage till 11:30pm!
