In this episode Kate chats to an old school friend, Mark Fielden! Mark is the Founder of ‘Chords Crush Cancer’ which he started as a fundraiser for his Mum Margaret back in 2016 when she was sadly diagnosed with cancer.
Mark was so touched by the care she received from the Shropshire charity, The Lingen Davies Cancer fund, that he organised a music event which started as a one-off and has grown into an annual event that has raised over £10,000 in memory of his Mum who sadly passed away in 2017.
Mark has attracted some big names to support the event over the years including Chris Ramsey, Sir Tom Jones, Brian Adams, The PDC, Manchester United to name just a few. He was given an award by the charity for his fundraising efforts and on top of this, he also released a music album in the first lockdown to raise money for the NHS!
He also has a day job as a store manager for one of the UK's favourite shops – Home Bargains. Connect with Mark and find out more at: https://www.facebook.com/chordscrushcancer or on Twitter @ChordsCrush
