There will be a very personal connection to a welcome cross border appearance by the Woodfalls Band in Wales this weekend.
The West of England Regional Champion will be appearing in concert in Bassaleg near Newport on Saturday in an event that will raise money for the Velindre Cancer Care Centre.
The band's professional MD Dr Robert Childs will be conducting, whilst in the audience will be his wife Lorraine who received wonderful care and support from the NHS Trust hospital staff during her recent illness.
He told 4BR: "Velindre helps hundreds of people every year, and the amazing staff do a quite incredible job. This is a just a thank you back in return from my family to them, so it's is going to be a night of great music and support.
I'm delighted that the band is joined by the Risca Male Voice Choir, one of the finest in Wales, and I'm sure there is going to be something on the menu for everyone to enjoy."

Woodfalls have teamed up with the award winning Risca Male Voice Choir under their conductor Geraint Davies at Bassaleg School (NP10 8NF) on Saturday (2nd December) starting with great pre-concert music provided by the talented pupils of the school's Brass Ensemble.
