Thread Name: Cyril Tawney celebration @ C# House-14 April 2007
Subject: RE: Cyril Tawney celebration @ C# House
Charley - here's some info on other celebrations, which have already taken place...(details from Cyril's site)

Shep Woolley's Plymouth evening in memory of Cyril on 20th April, with support by Hanging Johnny, raised 1667 for the Diving Diseases Research Centre. By all accounts it was a great evening and it may be repeated next year.

The Four Fools Folk Club's "Sing For Cyril" Sponsored Sing on 22nd April made 1200 for RNLI. Ken and Angie Bladen, who organised it, report that ony two songs were duplicated throughout the 12 hours - two performances of "Sally Free and Easy" and two of "The Leaving of Liverpool". Quite an achievement by the versatile participants!

Bodmin Folk Club's Open House Night on 30th June raised 400 for DDRC.

A big 'Thank you' to Shep, Hanging Johnny, Four Fools and the Bodmin Club for their efforts and to all those who have previously, and continue to, put on tribute events to Cyril, most of them raising funds for local and national charities - they include Market Rasen Folk Club, Windward Folk Club, St Albans, Scarborough Festival of the Sea, Sidmouth Folk Week 2005, Cutty Wren Folk Club, Marske and Whitby Folk Week 2005.

There will also be a tribute event at the Swanage Festival - details to follow
