This is a bit of a strange blog for a wedding & portrait photographer. Sometimes in our daily lives we forget those that are less fortunate, instead concentrating on our day to day lives thinking we have enough on our plate.

Indeed, we all have our fair share of problems. I for one get so tied up in a busy schedule that when I pause, if only for a second, I feel like being selfish. Some friends of ours have been busy thinking the exact opposite. They have very selflessly organised a night for a very special cause.

I do not know Joseph Lillywhite, but I now know about his plight as our friends have raised awareness through a gig they have put on in aid of his Illness. He has Neuroblastoma, a very rare childrens cancer.

Even though I knew nothing about Joseph, what hit me was I’d heard of the cancer before. Unfortunately some other friends of ours were affected by it over a year ago. It’s a terrible illness and one that really puts any troubles we may have in our daily lives to shame.

‘Gigging For Joseph’ is a charity night being held on the outskirts of Leeds at The Barwick-In-Elmet Village Hall on the 10th of August. It’s in aid of Joseph and all proceeds taken go to the charity. Entrance is a mere £3 each, children go free and there is a host of entertainment on the night, all provided for by the good people we know.

These very same people are performing on the night in their band Sola Virtus.  Solo performances by Vikki Martin and ‘Spanish Dave’, as well as a DJ round off the entertainment, but there will be a raffle during the evening where we are offering a 2 hour portrait session as one of the prizes, amongst many more.

These amazing people have given up a lot of their time to organise and participate in this one night for a fantastic cause. Why don’t you? All it takes is a few quid and you will be entertained, in great company and at the same time you will be providing hope for Joseph and others like him.

Saturday the 10th of August. Barwick-In-Elmet Village Hall. £3. In aid of Joseph Lillywhite. It’s worth putting your problems on hold for, surely?
