Popular “Songs for Dougie Mac” concert returns

Wolstanton Rotary Club is once again holding its hugely popular “Songs for Dougie Mac” concert at Stoke Minster on Saturday 8th October.

The evening will feature songs by The City of Stoke-on-Trent Male Voice Choir and the Dougie Mac Choir, as well as special performances by Ellie Moran, recent Soloist and chorister from André Rieu and the Johann Strauss Orchestra’s World Tour. It promises to be a fantastic night of live entertainment, with 100% of all ticket sales being donated to Dougie Mac.

Tickets for the event on 8th October are just £10 for adults and free for under 12s, and are available to buy from Dougie Mac on Barlaston Road, Blurton and from Dougie Mac’s charity shops in Newcastle, Hanford, Longton, Meir and Stoke and online at . Guests can also buy tickets on the night.

Glyn Mycock, Public Image Chair from Wolstanton Rotary Club commented; “The Rotary Club of Wolstanton has supported the local community for over 35 years and during that time Dougie Mac Hospice has never been far from our thoughts. Like lots of people in North Staffs, many of our members’ families and friends have needed the amazing support that the hospice offers. Our involvement in Songs for Dougie Mac offers another opportunity to raise invaluable funds for Dougie Mac.”

Ian Cameron from the City of Stoke-on-Trent Male Voice Choir added; “The City of Stoke-on-Trent Male Voice Choir is delighted to be again performing in support of the upcoming Dougie Mac concert at The Minster. Under the adroit musical direction of Robert Slinn, and outstanding accompanist Pat Mair, some forty choristers, ranging in age from 17 to 93 will sing a selection of well-known choral pieces from across the years.”

Dougie Mac relies on 75% of its annual income coming from voluntary donations which includes fundraising events like Songs for Dougie Mac. Without support from clubs like Wolstanton Rotary Club and members of the local community the specialist care provided for children, young adults, adults and their families simply would not be possible.

Ashley Mellor, musical director of Dougie Mac Choir, added, “I’m delighted to be able to come together with City of Stoke-on-Trent Male Voice Choir and Ellie Moran to once again raise invaluable funds for Dougie Mac.”

Songs for Dougie Mac will be held at Stoke Minster, Glebe Street, Stoke, on Saturday 8th October, doors open 6.15pm for a 7pm start. Tickets are on sale now.
