We spoke in the post below (7th April) of the great help Sylvia and Peter Orrick were at the Metrocentre. So, here is a shot of Sylvia and Tom just before Tom's final performance of the day!
In the background you can see Herbert, one of the MetroGnomes, who - as you can see below, took a liking to Tom's CD, "crescendo".
Tom Wyllie, North East Singer, performed today at the Metrocentre, Gateshead on behalf of the Children's Cancer Charity Toma Fund. He performed three sets, in between the Metrognome's Easter shows in Exhibition Square. He sang a selection of songs from his CD "crescendo", which was also on sale, with Tom contributing a portion of the sale proceeds to Toma Fund.
We're waiting to hear how much was raised, but thank you to everyone who contributed to this great charity, to those who left such warm feedback and to those who bought the CD! Particular thanks go to Sylvia and Peter Orrick, who spent the whole day in Exhibition Square. This was the third time they have seen Tom perform, and they helped out with the fundraising on the day. Tom dedicated "Nella Fantasia" to Sylvia as it is one of her favourite songs.
If you were there and would like to offer some feedback on Tom's performance, please let us know via the Contact Form and we'll post it on the website!
Tom Wyllie, North East Singer, will be performing on behalf of Toma Fund at The Metro Centre, this Easter Saturday 7th April 2012.
