Over the past 10 years, Sarah Lisa Mathis has helped raise over £50,000 for charity through live music events in Leigh On Sea. A staggering amount.
Her first event was a joint venture with Kim, the then-landlady of the Crooked Billet in Old Leigh, raising thousands of pounds for inflammatory breast cancer research.
It was sadly shortly after this event that Kim Passed away after contracting the disease.
Sarah continued the good work that she started, and held an annual event for Marie Curie who ended up looking after Kim in her final weeks.
Sarah started adding extra events throughout the year, raising thousands for the Essex Air Ambulance, Macmillan and the RNLI.
These events are completely free for the public, and are well supported with local musicians giving up their time and talent to help Sarah in her endeavours to raise funds for such worthy causes.
This Year Sarah has been supported by Ye Olde Smack in Leigh and will be holding a Musical Extravaganza on the 16th of December, raising money for Marie Curie.
The line-up looks amazing, and it is an evening full of fantastic music for a wonderful cause.
