Cancer sufferer records CD aid charities
After being diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, Martin Jones decided to put his passion for music to good use and record a charity CD.
Mr Jones, from Box, was diagnosed four months ago and is about to start chemotherapy.
To keep his mind off his treatment he recorded the CD, and will be selling it to raise money for Cancer Research, Macmillian Cancer Support, and the Forever Friends Appeal at the Royal United Hospital.
The 56-year-old was joined by friends and old band members for the CD, called Going off the Rails.

He said: "I feel all my life I have taken and now is the time to do something in return.
"I have played music on and off since I was a boy. In the last four years, I have built my own recording studio at home, in my garage.
"At first I had in mind to make an album of mainly my own music and that of a couple of bands I belonged to and played with.
"Since then I have realised that many other people, musicians and artists wanted to contribute too.
"It kept my mind off my treatment, and gave me something to do while I am off work."
The CD costs £5, with £1.50 for postage if ordered from Mr Jones.
The carpenter and joiner said: "As we all know cancer is a terrible disease which is now estimated to affect one in three people.
"Anyone, no matter how small their contribution – can make a difference, and the proceeds from this album will make a difference to these charities."
The album is available from Mr Jones by emailing mmvstudio.co. email@example.com, or from the music stall in Green Park Station, The Bell Inn, or Reboot Computer Services at Walcot Street.
A launch event will be held on Saturday at New Oriel Hall in Larkhall, from 2pm until 4pm.
