    KMAC (KISS MY ASS CANCER) Was founded by a very brave lady by the name of Nicola Murrells. She fought cancer for 4 years, eventually losing her battle in September 2017. In this time she set up a charity to help fund research and treatment, at The Royal Marsden, into immunotherapy and non toxic treatments of The Big C.
    Her Brother, Gregg Boughey, appeared on Stafford FM's Tonka Talks with Rich MF Tomkinson, during the Summer, where Rich pledged to help the cause by committing to take on the challenge of staging The Real Full Monty at Stafford's Gatehouse Theatre next March.
    A willing group has been assembled and rehearsals are well under way. I'm just posting this to make people aware, then further links will be added for ticket sales, website, facebook etc to let you know how things are going.
    The dates are Monday 25th March and Wednesday 27th March and the shows will include, music, comedy, interviews and stories of peoples' personal experiences, culminating in the "Big Reveal!" Based on the fomat of the ITV version, there is one Mens' group and a Ladies' group. We hope this captures the imagination of the town and people come out in numbers.

    Together, Let's Kick Cancer's Ass!

    Can we sell it out before New Year?

    Help Needed Please:
    Do you know anyone or any company that would be willing to provide us with 10 to 12 security/police/ uniforms with white shirts and hats for us to use for our Full Monty Show in 2019 ?
    They will get loads of free advertising and mentions in the programs and adverts throughout.
    Thank you in advance

    Tickets will be on sale for the event in a couple of weeks - From Stafford Gatehouse. You might even see some of the team at an upcoming event, or two!
    This is just one chapter of the story but the youtube page shows some of what has gone on, so far.

    TBC - Kit & Grace aka "Gin Sunday" may be singing, live on stage, with a video in the background to promote the event - at Saturday's big lights switch on!
    Hoping this brings this to people's attention as well as taking people on a journey of discovery about some very important work.

    Time is moving on and we are now only 11 weeks from our shows. We have built numerous relationships, including new sponsors, as we incur numerous costs along the way. Briggs Equipment, Cannock have come forward as main sponsors, to date. Massive thanks to these companies and if you would like to back the shows, please get in touch with us.
    A £1,000 donation brings you main sponsorship, while £200 donations can get you into our event programme and associated publicity through Facebook.
    We are well over a third of the way into our ticket sales so you will reach over 1000 people over two nights, plus all associated publicity.
    Much Love and Thanks For Your Support

    Tilly, will you be coming along? Tickets left, life saving treatment to be funded. The night will be getting more publicity with an interview with some of the girls on Stafford FM on Monday morning (14th), then some of the team on Thursday afternoon on Signal 1 (17th), plus coverage in local papers next week (16th & 17th).
    The Facebook page is approaching 600 followers so if each has 2 tickets we'd be over capacity!

    The story continues to grow. Rich (Tonka) is having acts and sponsors in the Studio each Sunday night for a number of weeks and emotions have been high, with real life stories coming to the fore.
    Interviews and acts available here - https://www.facebook.com/tonkatalks/

    As of 06/02/19 mid day over 600 tickets sold and over 400 still to go.
