CHESTERFIELD: Jazz musician to boost charity

editorial image

A LOCAL jazz musician is using his musical talent to raise vital funds for a charity which supports parents and families whose babies are stillborn or die shortly after birth.

Ex-military musician Wil Robinson, from Chesterfield, is helping Chesterfield Sands, the stillbirth and neonatal death charity, to develop a memorial garden so that parents, families and friends have somewhere peaceful to spend time and remember their baby.

Wil, who fronts The Southside Jazz Band, is no stranger to helping someone live with the heartache of the death of a baby as his partner Claire’s son, Luke, was stillborn 16 years ago.

Wil has organised a concert in Luke’s memory on April 6 at 7.30pm at the Speedwell Rooms, Inkersall Road, Staveley.

He said: “We’re really excited about the concert.

“It promises to be an evening of great musical entertainment and it’s all for a great cause

Tickets are available on the door.

Alternatively, contact southsidejazz@hotmail.com or telephone Wil on 07875 578266.

All proceeds will go to Sands.
