  • Thank You From Duncan Yandell:
    We received the following note fron Duncan after his appearance at the Summer Street Party.

    To the Committee and Members of the POTCG
    A heartfelt thanks for your generous donations at our recent street party on the Queens Birthday. The final total raised was just over £213 and every penny will go to various cancer charities.
    It was a pleasure to play for you on the day and a delight that the weather was kind enough for us all to enjoy thw occasion.
    I hope to continue to fundraise for charity through my music, so if you, or your "charity" or someone you know is planning an event that would benefit from some music for easy listening and/or dancing, I will be more than happy to provide it. All I ask is for a modest donation to a cancer charity.
    You can contact my by email at greygappers@yahoo.co.uk or call my mobile on 07788 100233
    Thank you very much for your support.
