Ep 258 – Yorkshire Entry for Rose of Tralee & Charity Night for Rosemere Cancer Foundation

This week…

In Part 1, we’re at the Leeds Irish Centre selecting the 2022 Yorkshire representative for the Rose of Tralee. Lots of music and dance And we reveal this year’s Yorkshire Rose. They’ll be off to Tralee to join the other regional winners, building up to the grand finale in August. The Rose of Tralee Festival, now in its 63rd year is celebrated by Irish communities all over the world and was inspired by a 19th-century song about “Mary”, “The Rose of Tralee”.

In Part 2, we off to St Mary’s Parish Centre in Chorley for a fundraising evening in aid of the Rosemere Cancer Foundation.
This charity supports the Rosemere Cancer Centre at the Royal Preston Hospital. Around 200 patients visit the centre every day for cancer diagnosis and treatment, including chemotherapy, immunotherapy and radiotherapy.
Amongst others, we meet Dan Hill from the Foundation and the organiser of the event, Denis Ashcroft.
A good evening of entertainment from Sean Leonard and Lindsay, all in a good cause.
