AN UP and coming Clitheroe music producer has released a new single to raise money for Cancer Research UK.
Dad-of-three Ant Bradley, who has lived in the town for 27 years, wants to raise £2,500 for the charity after his uncle, John Bolton (65) had part of his bowel removed recently because of the disease.
Ant, whose dance music has attracted the attention of Universal Records, also recently had a cancer scare when he was advised by his GP to have an unknown mouth lesion checked out at hospital. He was given the all clear by a oral and maxillofacial specialist, but is on the waiting list for a biopsy to be safe.
He said: “I wanted to do some good with this track and I want to raise as much as possible.”
All of the profits from the instrumental single, Ant Bradley 2012, will go to the charity. Readers can find it by searching `Ant Bradley 2012’ on iTunes and Google Play. The uplifting track costs only 99p.
“A big side of doing this is giving back to people. It affected me, and is still doing so really, but others have had worse experiences and I hope this goes some way to helping Cancer Research UK,” he said.
“I ‘m hoping that Clitheroe and the surrounding areas will get behind and support this campaign as a community.”
He is currently working on vocal edit version in his studio which is planned to be released later this year.
Ant’s wife, Rachel, said: “It’s a really good cause to raise money for and I’m so proud of him. Cancer has affected our family quite recently and this way he can help others who have been affected by it.
“It’s been hard for him to get where he is today, but I think this single is the start of something big.”
Jane Bullock, of Cancer Research UK, said: “We rely entirely on the fund-raising efforts of individuals such as Ant to fund our pioneering work across the UK.”
