THE FISHBOURNE Centre is set to host a fundraising concert on Saturday (November 9).

The Voyd are performing in aid of Tj Colwell, the seven-year-old boy who featured on the front page of the Observer in August.

He was diagnosed with the incredibly rare Niemann-Pick disease in April, a genetic disease so rare there are less than 100 recorded cases in the UK.

It is life-shortening and there is no cure.

The performance will be held from 7.30pm and is scheduled to finish at 11pm on Saturday, November 9.

The entry fee is £5 and includes a wristband.

The Voyd will be preceded on stage by support band Deserved Noise.

Sausages and chips will also be on sale at the gig for £3.

Money raised from the performance will go towards the Niemann-Pick Foundation to research the disease and also to Tj’s family to help him enjoy a number of activities.
