Following the wonderful success of Childhood Cancer Benefit Concert 1, which raised over $20,000, another amazing line-up of world renowned Australian Blues Roots artists are donating their time and talents. Geoff Atkinson, Lazy Eye, Mojo Dingo, and Ciara Walsh will perform at Childhood Cancer Benefit Concert No 2 at The German Club on Saturday, 25th November, 2017.

The funds raised from Childhood Cancer Benefit Concert 2 will support Bradley's Place. .

In 1991, Neil and Robyn Walker lost Bradley, one of their twins to cancer at the age of four. Their experience helped them realise how important support systems were to them and other families experiencing a similar situation. Subsequently they became actively involved in supporting the endeavours of the Childhood Cancer Association.

In 2004, the Walkers and their fundraising group (The Six State Challenge Team) opened a special house they called Bradley's Place with the funds they raised.

This house is located at Inman Valley where it is located close to beautiful beaches and local attractions. Bradley's Place provides a peaceful place away from the stresses and demands that come with this life changing illness.

The Zonta Club of Fleurieu Peninsula have been long term supporters of Bradley's Place. Their support is invaluable to the Childhood Cancer Association, and helps ensure families receive the best possible care and support during their stay at Bradley's Place.
