Sophie Cox-O’Shaughnessy performed a selection of her own folk and folk rock songs and covers in Preston city centre in aid of CLIC Sargent.She collected £162.25 for the charity which supports children suffering from cancer. Sophie, from Preston, said: “I do fund-raising as a musician when I can. I’ve supported a few different charities and when I came across CLIC Sargent it really moved me as I think cancer is dreadful enough, let alone being a child. They need all the help they can get as life is so important and precious.“As a solo effort (with some kind support from friends and colleagues) I have managed to raise £162.25.”
