Prize fighters’ bid to hit cancer hard

Big-hearted musicians are using their Band of the Year success to help in the fight against cancer.

Local three-piece, Educatables picked up prizes of recording time with local studios when they were crowned as the area’s best band in November.

And the lads have used their recording sessions with generous prize providers The Foundry, Lock Up, SCART and Unit 5 studios to record a special EP which they’re now selling for charity.

The four songs recorded at each session have been used to make up their Steal The Night EP.

And sales of the EP throughout this week will be used to raise funds for Cancer Research UK.

Drummer Ricky Barson explained: “We’ve all been affected by cancer in some way at some point in our lives and this charity has no funding source other than the public.

“My missus’ mum has been diagnosed with cancer and we wanted to help raise some funds and we thought thios would be a good way of helping.

“We’re hoping people will but the EP and help make a difference.”

The fund-raising record went on sale via iTunes on Monday and further details are available by visiting the band’s facebook page

The band will also be promoting the single when they play the biggest gig of their lives this week.

They will be supporting Professor Green at the Keepmoat Stadium, Doncaster, on Saturday.

To further help with the charity drive, Eductables will be playing at special Cancer Research fundraisimng fun day, which takes place on Saturday 24th August at the Holmebrook Valley Family Centre.

The band’s video Staring at the Ceiling was filmed and produced by Digital Image Studios, Chesterfield, as part of the band’s prize package for winning Band of the Year
