Three of North Devons best known musical characters have joined the campaign to help a young mum with terminal cancer. Nickys Gig at SQ in Braunton on Wednesday, June 8, will be raising money for Nicky Vanstone, from Bratton Fleming, who has been diagnosed with advanced cancer at the age of just 33. The gig is at 7.30pm and is free, but it is hoped people will donate as much as they can to Nickys Hope Fund. The night will feature blues maestro Giles Robson, Small Town Jones (Jim Jones) and well-known Barnstaple DJ Matt the Hat. Widely known and widely liked, the community has rallied around Nicky following her bombshell diagnosis, raising £20,482 so far. The event hopes to boost that towards the £25,000 target. This could yet buy her treatments that may help, or if that sadly does not become possible, will enable her to start a charity giving play therapy to children who lose a parent at a young age. Nicky and her husband Chris have a three-year-old daughter, Fern, and fears for Ferns future have been one of the toughest parts of her gruelling cancer ordeal. She saw in the New Year with a four-hour night hike, but, in the second week of January, doctors diagnosed her with incurable bowel cancer, already spread to the liver and abdomen, and gave her 18 months to live. All musicians are playing for free on the night and there is also a raffle, with prizes including a holiday park short break, tickets to local attractions, baby sensory classes, riding lessons, and a SQ meal for two.For more North Devon stories visit our news feed here.
