For one night and day only... Going Back To Our Roots is back for a very special occasion. We will be hosting a very special fundraiser for a very special 9 year old, Lily Douglas. She's an explosion of energy, full of talent, joy and kindness and is facing one of life's hardest journeys. Cancer. Five weeks ago 9 year old Lily went to her doctors with a sore lump on her shoulder after attending a dance competition. There was no warning, no symptoms. Treatment begins May 1st at Edinburgh Sick Kids Hospital.
