Thousands of fans who braved the rain to watch Pixie Lott headline the Bristol Jubilee Concert at The Mall at Cribbs Causeway donated more than £10,000 to charity in return for their tickets.
Donations went towards ‘A Life for a Cure’, Bristol teenager Ryan Bresnahan’s Meningitis Appeal.
The money will be used to research a vaccine to fight meningitis B, which sadly killed the 16-year-old in just two hours.
As well as making a voluntary £1 donation whilst collecting their free ticket to the concert, fans were also able to donate £2 in exchange for a limited edition wrist band.
After a moving speech from the Bresnahan family, the crowd were encouraged to send free text donations to the charity throughout the concert.
Maria Crayton, head of marketing at The Mall at Cribbs Causeway said: “We would like to say a huge thank you to everybody who made a donation to ‘a Life for a Cure’ both during the concert and at our ticket giveaways. These generous donations mean that we are able to exceed the target of £10,000 for ‘a Life for a Cure’.”
