A St Annes great-grand-father has organised a fun night to thank those who treated him for cancer.

Graham Smith is holding the fund-raiser on July 4 at Garstang’s Wyrebank Banqueting Suite in aid of the Rosmere Cancer Foundation to support its work at the Rosemere Cancer Centre, in Preston.

In 2012, Graham, a widower and great-grand-father of two, was diagnosed with and underwent treatment for prostate cancer. He is now in remission.

Graham had a successful professional singing career in his younger years, fronting the band Sum People, supporting the likes of The Beatles and Elton John. He will be onstage with fellow singer David Littlewood – the pair regularly perform songs from the 60s through to the 90s in clubs and pubs. For tickets, call (01995) 605455.
