Band checks out for Breast Cancer Care

Minsterley Rock band Judas Johnson have raised £350 for Breast Cancer Care from the sale of their recent debut album Psycho at a special launch event. The event took place at Snailbeach Village Hall and featured a film to promote the album, live performances from singer/songwriter Ceri Burgess and Judas Johnson, plus the first airing of the album.

Breast Cancer Care has been the band's nominated charity since the loss of Cheryl Boon, wife of bass player Chris, to the disease two years ago. The specially invited audience of family, friends and local musicians made donations in exchange for a copy of the album.

The band's singer/guitarist, Mark Johnson said: 'We wanted to create something special for the album launch and the evening was fantastic success. The generosity of our guests in donating so much shows the depth of feeling towards this important charity.'

The band are now taking a break before planning their next big event. Drummer Mark Evans said: 'We need a rest after such a hectic schedule planning the launch but the next event is already being considered and promises to be bigger and better in the hope of raising even more for the charity.
