J&B Recycling is proud to have been one of the co-sponsors for Music v Cancer's final music weekender.  

 

Harnessing the power of music to fight cancer, the charity, which was set up by founder Tony Larkin back in 2012, has raised a phenomenal £327,000 to date through holding bi annual music weekenders. 

 

Vikki Jackson-Smith, Managing Director at J&B Recycling said: “MvC is a charity that is dear to the hearts of many and J&B is proud to have been able to support the fantastic work it has done for the people of Hartlepool and North Tees.  

 

“The charity’s annual music weekenders are always a brilliant event, and this year was no exception. Having showcased such an array of fantastic music talent over the past eight years we’re very sad to see them come to an end, but a huge well done to Tony for all his hard work over the years. He has done the North East proud!”

 

All the money raised by Music V Cancer has gone towards providing cancer treatment supplies and detection equipment for the Hartlepool and North Tees Hospital Trust. 

 

Last year, the charity made a donation to the University Hospital of Hartlepool, helping the trust to convert a disused space on the chemotherapy ward in to a family room. 

 

Tony Larkin, Founder of the Music v Cancer charity, said: “Without the support of the local business community through donations and sponsorships of the MvC Live Sessions over the years, the events wouldn’t have been the success that they have been. Vikki Jackson-Smith and her team have always been generous supporters of MvC and I’d like to thank J&B for its continued backing.”  

 

The final weekender took place on the 6-7th October at The Grand Hotel in Hartlepool, with a wide range of artists taking to the stage, including Shaun Redlake, THePETEBOX, Megan O’Neill, and Citrus Heights.

 

At the event Tony present a cheque for £26,314 to Dr Mary George to fully fund the new Gynae Project at Hartlepool Hospital to help detect women’s cancer at a much earlier rate.
