Cherry Lodge Cancer Care is hugely grateful to Psychobilly Kicks Back (PKB) and the wider psychobilly rockabilly music community for their ongoing support. Our featured photograph shows Steve (Ginger) Meadham, founder of PKB, and his wife Amanda at Howard House on 29th March 2023, about to hand over a big cheque for £3,800 to help fund Cherry Lodge’s much needed services. PKB are long-term supporters of Cherry Lodge, and this cheque brings the total they have raised for us to date to a truly fantastic £48,376.
For more information about PKB’s past and future events, please visit Psychobilly Kicks Back (for Cancer) on Facebook. In his most recent post, on the day of the big cheque handover, Steve thanked his supporters for all their hard work and described what had been a very up and down year, with cancelled shows and no stock due to health problems. Specific thanks were given to Thomas Heiden and Andree Sinner for putting on a support show, to PKB Fiddler’s Elbow and the fantastic bands that played their hearts out, plus supporters’ help with auctions and raffles, and a £200 donation from Doghouse Radio. Despite the challenges, “we still done so well”!
Looking to the future, there will be a big PKB show in Germany. There is also auction stuff ready to go on line and donations are coming in – “gonna be a good year I think, thank you all, and of course PKB staff helpers, and my partner in crime, Amanda Meadham. We thank you all.”
