Rowland Road Social Club in Beeston Hill are on Saturday 17 November hosting a charity gig with veteran Leeds band ‘Clandestine Root’ – raising funds for St Gemma’s Hospice and The Teenage Cancer Trust.
9-piece band ‘Clandestine Root’ have been around Leeds since the 1960s, playing a wide range of blues, soul and rock music. Nowadays they re-form for just one gig per year, for cancer charities – and are this year in Beeston.
Steve Firth, from the Rowland Road management team, commented:
“Many of us have been bereaved or affected by cancer – and over the years, 4 members of the band have themselves lost their lives to cancer. So we didn’t hesitate to allow the band to host their annual event at our club; and we’re working hard with local businesses (including Leeds Rhinos) to organise a grand raffle to raise extra charity cash. Further support with the raffle is very welcome, or please join us on the night: everyone’s welcome.”
Tickets will cost £2 on the door, with all proceeds going to the charities. For more info on Rowland Road, click here.
