WHITEHAVEN musicians are all set to rock ‘n’ roll to raise money to help give a voice to a little girl.

Front man, Ryan Burns, has organised a gig to raise money for a Voice for Lily, on Friday September 9 at the Moor Row Club.

A Voice for Lily is a charity set up to help raise funds to purchase an eyegaze for Lily Tyson who suffers from Rett Syndrome.

Rett Syndrome is a condition which causes physical and mental disabilities, the biggest and most frustrating thing for Lily is not being able to communicate, verbally or physically.

An eyegaze is a communication device which can cost up to £12,000.

Ryan Burns said: “I felt that I should get involved because it’s for a local cause and the ability to communicate is something we often take for granted. For me to put a gig on is nothing for what Lily and her family must go through every day, so hopefully we can raise plenty of money for her.”

Along with Mama Sang and the Robot, Jon and Wayne, South Quay and the Mustangz will all be performing on the evening to help raise money.

The fundraiser will take place on Friday September 9, at the Moor Row Club, tickets are available from:
