Fundrasing gig for Amelia

A CONCERT is being held to raise cash for Ilkeston girl Amelia Rose Sutton.

The band, Karl and the Marx Brothers, are playing the gig at Ilkeston FC Bar and Functions Rooms to raise money for H.A.R.T – The Healp Amelia Rose Trust.

Amelia was born four weeks premature with severe brain damage after lying on her umbilical cord.

The trust was set up to raise funds to build Amelia a special sensory room which will help with both her development and her quality of life.

Work on the room is underway but more cash is needed for equipment.

The concert takes place on Friday March 23 at 7.30pm and tickets costs £5.

Tickets are available from or at Ilkeston FC, Awsworth Road, Ilkeston.
