Poverty Corner reform to raise cash for St Michael’s
Back in the 70s David Beale (pictured 3rd from the left) played the bass guitar with the chart-topping Steve Gibbons Band.
Later he went on to form his own band ‘Poverty Corner’. Four decades later and David has reformed the band to play a St Michael’s Hospice fundraiser at Bromyard Cricket Club.
With publicity and marketing help from his daughters, Claire Jellis and Alice Beale (pictured 2nd and fouth from the left) the gig raised £325 for St Michael’s.
David said, ‘Friends of mine have received exceptional care at St Michael’s Hospice, and I wanted to do something to help. I want to thank my fellow band members Steve Palmer singer, Geoff Masters on drums and Graham Masters on guitar. I’d also like to thank Bromayard Cricket Club for free use of the venue and a donation from bar sales.
Everyone at St Michael’s would like to thank all those who supported the event and hope Dave and Poverty Corner 2 keep on rocking for many years to come.
