The Big Red Gig has been organised by businessman and musician, Nigel Wagstaff – aka Waggy. He’ll will be joined by musicians including Bob Bonner and Mick Costello at Northants County Cricket Club on February 10.

Mr Wagstaff said: “The Big Red Gig is something I’m very passionate about. The gig is just one of the ways we are helping to raise money for the ward and the vital care it provides so many families.

“Overall we are hoping to raise almost £40,000 to help buy the Giraffe incubator. We hope as many people as possible will buy tickets in aid of this great cause, it promises to be a great night.”
