Cardiff & Vale Health Charity: Staff members from B4 Neurosurgery at Cardiff and Vale University Health Board were in for a treat this week when Boycezone the Max Boyce tribute band, paid a visit and presented the staff with a cheque for £553!

Dressed up like Max Boyce, who they call their hero, the band sang on the streets and in pubs across Cardiff before Wales’s rugby games in the 2015 World Cup, to raise money for the Neurosurgery Ward. The stepdaughter of one of the band members, Jeremy, has been a patient on the ward, and the band wanted to say thank you for the care she received, especially the support from staff members like Neurosurgeon Mr Imran Bhatti and Clinical Nurse Specialist Tess Northmore, whilst preparing for surgery and in recovery.

Boycezone have raised nearly £40,000 for good causes by busking at Rugby Internationals since 1999. Local charities such as South Wales Alzheimer's Society, Touch Trust, Tenovus, Y Bont, Lung Cancer Campaign Carmarthenshire, Whitchurch Hospital League of Friends, Pancreatic Cancer Charity and LATCH have all benefited from a kind donation.

Lucie Barrett, Senior Fundraising Officer said: “We are very grateful to Jeremy and Boycezone, and the generosity of The Welsh Rugby Union fans.

The donation will enable us support and enhance the ward services that care for people and keep people well”.
