The Macmillan 'Mikey Lawless Stage' Rockin the Bowl 2020
Last year the Rockin the Bowl festival held its first ever rock music event in Sheffield, UK.
One of the many superb bands to play that event was Falling Red. This amazing band had a young Bass player by the name of Mikey Lawless. Mikey was an exceptional individual and a great musician.
Mikey was diagnosed early last year with incurable brain cancer and underwent a treatment of chemotherapy that had a 25% chance of giving him another two years to live. Despite this Mikey continued to rock and loved to meet friends and fans alike at every gig. In September 2019 he rocked the Don Valley Bowl
In October he gave everyone an update that recent scans had shown the cancer had halved in size so looked incredibly positive.
As with most forms of cancer though, it came back with a vengeance and sadly , way before his time on Friday 3rd Jan 2020, Mikey passed away in hospital surrounded by friends and family.
Rockin the Bowl was one of the last times Mikey ever stepped onto a stage and we intend to honour him at Rockin the Bowl 2020.
You can help us to do this....by helping us raise funds to have a large stage top banner (1.5 metres x 10 metres) in his name custom made (see image at the top) and two large stage wing banners to make up the 'Mikey Lawless' stage.
The world renowned Macmillan cancer charity is endorsing this project and are proud to put their name to it to help raise awareness.
After enough funds have been raised to have the banners made, EVERY penny raised beyond this will go direct to this amazing charity. Please help us do this brave guys memory proud.
EVERY PERSON WHO MAKES A DONATION will be named on a separate Macmillan thank you banner which will be displayed on the day of the event.
R.I.P. Mikey Lawless.
