Jackie Storrar for Maggies

Popular singer & broadcaster Jackie Storrar, who has had a scare with cancer this year, is raising funds for local Maggies charity in Fife,and Breakthrough Breast Cancer by releasing a new single, and performing two hometown gigs this month.
“In 2004 I wrote a song called “My Angel” as a tribute to British TV Presenter Caron Keating who died of breast cancer", Jackie says on her website. "Caron was a great believer in Angels. Little did I know then that 6 years later I would be fighting for my own life with the same disease. The song has been sitting in a folder for all these years waiting on the right moment to be recorded. I didn’t think it would ever see the light of day, but after my own recent battle, now seems the right time!”
The song is available for download from www.jackiestorrar.com
October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and Jackie felt she wanted to “give something back” for all the wonderful care she has received from the NHS, and is organising two charity music nights later this month in aid of Maggie’s Fife (a cancer care centre based in Kirkcaldy.)
The Pancake Place, Kirk Wynd, Kirkcaldy – Wed. 20th Oct 7.30pm
The Beveridge Park Hotel, Abbotshall Road, Kirkcaldy – Sun. 24th Oct. 2.30pm
