Charity Event on September 13th

The Sweet will be appearing at a very special charity event in September along with Weapon (UK) and Paddy Goes To Holyhead.

"In November 2011 our dear friend of thirty years, Ingrid Paasch, had an aneurysm on the right side of her brain. She is now paralysed down the left side of her body. Due to her paralysis, Ingrid is confined to a wheelchair and currently resides in a care home in Reading, ironically near the festival site she has graced on many occasions over the years!

"Since the stroke, Ingrid has worked hard on her rehabilitation and has regained her speech. However, to try getting the left side of her body working she needs specialist treatment - particularly on her arm and leg. The specialist physiotherapy she needs is not available on the NHS. So Ingrid has personally paid for this treatment from her savings, but the treatment has stopped due to diminishing funds.

"This is where we, her music biz friends, come in. A bunch of us have set up 'In It For Ingrid', a fund raising event, on Friday 13th September at The Rock Patch, Merton Manor Club, South Wimbledon with ALL proceeds going to help towards funding her treatment.

"The line-up on the night is The Sweet, Paddy Goes To Holyhead and special guests to be confirmed. Opening the show is NWOBHM band Weapon (UK).

"Several artists/bands have pledged merchandise/memorabilia, including former Rainbow/Ozzy and Uriah Heep bassist Bob Daisley, who is donating a signed copy of his new book 'For Facts Sake'.

"On behalf of all of us involved I urge you to support us in helping Ingrid get her life back.

"Thank you,

"Danny Hynes"

The Sweet epitomised the UK 70s Glam Rock movement with their trademark glitter and glam make-up. The Sweet were also a force to be reckoned with in pure rock music terms too. The Hits stand the test of time and the current line-up with original guitarist Andy Scott still keep the audiences shouting for more!
