The event saw 800 concert goers watch iconic 80’s band Heaven 17 perform at Northwich Plaza on Friday 12th August. On the night Heaven 17’s Glenn Gregory, Martyn Ware and the rest of the band played to a sell-out crowd with support from The Electromantics and Mark Radcliffe’s UNE. 

Kim Smith said; “We are absolutely delighted that Heaven17 fitted in a concert for this deserving cause despite their hectic touring schedule. We are trying to raise £50,000 and the money raised from the concert is a big step towards achieving the target”

Carole Salmon, Community Fundraiser for MCH Charity said: “Kim is a fundraising dynamo! She has an amazing way of connecting people and is so inspirational.
