All proceeds from the weekender will go to Action Kidney Cancer, who are a patient-led charity formed from the merger of Kidney Cancer Support Network and Renal Cancer Research Fund. They provide support services and information to the kidney cancer community throughout the United Kingdom and ensure that the patient voice is at the heart of research, care and treatment.

The event is organised by father & son Dave & Steve Pointon and follows their ‘Nantwich Northern Soul/Motown All Dayer’ last August, at the same venue, which raised £2,633 for the Kidney Cancer Support Network. Steve has fought kidney cancer twice in the past six years. The all dayer last year was such a success that this year it has been extended to a weekend event.

Dave & Steve Pointon said: “We look forward to the forthcoming weekender. We feel that it will be another success with, we believe all hotel accommodation within the town taken. Tickets have been posted far and wide and we also thank the local “Soul” community for their support for our charity. Nine and a half hours of continuous music on both days. We would also like to thank Nantwich Town FC for their continued support.”
