A Cookstown man along with other local musicans have produced a charity CD in a bid to raise awareness and funds for Meyloma.

Myeloma, also known as multiple myeloma, is a cancer arising from plasma cells, a type of white blood cell which is made in the bone marrow.

Sadly, some Cookstown families have known the seriousness of the disease and Cookstown man Billy Taylor and friends have recorded a special charity CD for the charity.

On Saturday 6th December in Cookstown Primary School the 18 track CD will be available. The school will be open between 2pm and 4pm and people are invited to come along any time in-between. Tea or coffee and eatables will be available on arrival all free of charge.

The sale of the CD called ‘Early Morning Dew’ features songs composed in aid of the charity music and lyrics by Billy Taylor.

The participants, singers and musicians, including some from the Ulster Orchestra, have given their

time and talent free of charge in aiming to make this successful.

Two years of hard work was involved and all songs were recorded in Studio 19 Co. Down.

Everyone is very welcome to come along and your help and support for this vital charity will be greatly valued.
