Concert in the memory of brave Stirling teenager


BIG names from the world of music, stage and screen are lined up to perform in a special, one-off concert inspired by a brave Stirling teenager.

Eilidh was 14 when she collapsed on a school trip last year, February 2009. A scan showed she had a tumour the size of a melon. Tests showed the tumour was malignant and that she also has a form of Turners Syndrome, a chromosomal disorder which occurs in 1 out of 2000 girls and is likely to have made Eilidh predisposed to Germ Cell Cancer in her ovaries. After numerous major surgeries and chemotherapy the cancer continued to spread and sadly on the 25th March 2010 at 5.30am Eilidh passed away.

Now, Eilidh’s family are putting together this fundraiser event in the hope to raise enough money to buy or build respite accommodation in the Stirling area for families touched by cancer. So let’s join together in the celebration of Eilidh with this fantastic line up and do your bit for The Eilidh Brown Memorial Fund.

Come along to support, join in and celebrate with an exceptional evening bringing together some of Scotland’s finest talent, including headliners Jon Fratelli (The Fratellis and Codeine Velvet Club) and Billy Boyd (Lord Of The Rings), alongside Mark Cox and Jane Mcgarry of Still Game, with their very own brand of humour. A bunch of other well-known faces will guarantee an evening full of entertainment.

Check out the Stirling Observer to read an interview with Eilidh’s parents Nicole and Gordon.
