Eliza's Let The Beat Drop - Rock n Soul Night with The Bishopsteignton Commitments and Mother's Ruin

Abbotskerswell Village Hall, Devon, TQ12 5YF
Sat 13th July 2019 7:30PM
'Eliza's Let The Beat Drop' is a fundraising campaign set up by Eliza Bell who grew up in Kingsteignton and recently underwent a lifesaving DCD (Donation After Circulatory Death) Heart Transplant.  

Eliza's goal is to raise £30,000 for Royal Papworth Hospital's DCD Appeal that raises funds for a pioneering new form of organ transportation. As you’ll see on Eliza's JustGiving page, 25% of that target has already been reached !

After a non-beating heart (which would previously not have been considered suitable for transplant) has been removed from the donor, it can now be placed inside a special portable machine and brought back to life. The beating heart is then kept alive in a lovely warm environment, and transported to the recipient awaiting a transplant.

Each 'heart-in-a-box' costs £30,000 and can only be used once, but in their first year of use they have helped to increase heart transplants by 47% in Papworth Hospital alone.

Come and join us for a fabulous evening of music and laughter with family and friends, to celebrate life and help Eliza's Fundraising Campaign at the same time !

Start the evening by enjoying the ever popular folk-rock band Mother’s Ruin, a lively 5 piece band who always bring a fun vibe with their rootsy/rockabilly renditions !  After light refreshments and a huge RAFFLE  you can boogie the night away to the superb sounds of The Bishopsteignton Commitments, a fantastic 13 piece soul band who deliver everything with magnificent panache and will have you on the dance floor in no time !

* Upbeat music and energetic performances guaranteed *

* Light refreshments included * Bar * Raffle * Parking * Disabled access * Disabled Toilet
