Mel Brierley, from Technique, said: “We are pleased to support Dr Kershaws at our Uppermill charity event once more.

“We really enjoy performing at the Civic Hall, where the audiences are appreciative of our music and readily enter the spirit of the occasion.

“Of course, we mustn’t forget the generosity of our sponsors and the hard work put in by the organisers, all of which help to make these events so successful.”

Angela Higham, Dr Kershaws Hospice Fundraising Team Leader, added: “I am overwhelmed with the amount Mel and the band has raised over the three years.

“I hope they continue to support the Hospice for many years to come, to support those in need in Oldham.”
