Old Nottinghamians, families, friends and music lovers, all around the world, are warmly invited to the ONs' Charity Gig 2020.
Zoe Konez will play live in aid of the Nottingham Renal Unit on Wednesday 16th December at 8.30pm. The show will be a livestream on youtube. Here is the link for you to watch the show live or later:
Based in London, Zoe Konez is a "wonderful singer, wonderful songwriter, wonderful guitarist" (Tom Robinson, musician and BBC Radio 6 Music DJ). She will perform her own songs and covers ranging from the 60s to now; from These Boots Are Made For Walkin' to The Weeknd. You can find out more about Zoe here.
The ONs' gigs for NHS causes began in 2016 at The Maze on Mansfield Road. Gaz and Steph Peacham, managers of this legendary city venue, kindly offered their stage to us for free. The much-loved Maze had to close, though, in 2019 and, even worse, Gaz then fell seriously ill. Following his recovery, we decided that the next ONs' charity gig would raise money for the unit that treated him.
The Nottingham Renal Unit serves a population of approximately one million. Patients arrive from three counties: Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire and Lincolnshire. Based at Nottingham City Hospital, the unit has 40 dialysis stations. Patients attend three times a week for four hours each time. Some are waiting for a kidney transplant; others require ongoing dialysis treatment.
Donations to Nottingham University Hospitals Charity help to improve the care of, and experience for, patients having life-saving treatment.
Thank you for your support for the ONs' Charity Gig 2020. It's going to be a great show!
