WARM UP PARTY AT THE HUNTER CLUB FOR JUST PUSH PLAY AT THE APEX
In aid of St Nicholas Hospice Care.
As this event marks Just Push Play’s 5th anniversary at The Apex, as well as being hosted on the anniversary of Lee’s Dad passing away, St Nicholas Hospice Care also celebrates its 40th anniversary. So for obvious reasons Lee thought he would host a party on the Friday night at the Hunter Club to celebrate this milestone!
Headlining the event is the one and only Jack J Hutchinson, with the mighty False Hearts and Broken Soul in support this is going to be one hell of a way to get started for the fun across the weekend in aid of St Nicholas Hospice Care !
Lee started Just Push Play in memory of his father Ian after someone joking said he should ‘Do Live Aid’ as a way to mark his fathers life. Lee’s father Ian Graham died after a very shot intense battle with cancer from diagnosis to him sadly passing away. In 2015 Lee decided to put together the first ‘Just Push Play’ concert to mark the 5th anniversary of his father Ian’s passing and to raise funds for St Nicholas Hospice Care who cared for Ian Graham during his short but intense battle with cancer. With Both Lee and Ian sharing a huge passion for live music, attending several gigs together, a charity gig in his Dad’s memory made perfect sense! The first year saw a selection of local bands play a social club and raise over £1300 for the hospice. This success spurred Lee to make the gig an annual event in memory of his father. The event had grown year on year and 2018 move from the social club it had been held the first 3 years to The Apex, Bury St Edmunds. Where it has been held ever since. To date the event has raised over £15,000 for St Nicholas Hospice Care.
