Union J ticket giveaways for deserving yellowbellies

A Lincolnshire children’s cancer charity is giving away free tickets to see Union J in London this Saturday. Here’s how you can apply.

Sophie’s Journey, a charity set up in memory of Lincoln girl Sophie Robinson, has been given 100 free tickets to see the X Factor heartthrobs Josh, JJ and Jaymi, aka Union J, at the O2 Arena in London on Saturday, September 1.

Ben Robinson and Stacy Southwell, founders of the charity outside the new caravan in Mablethorpe.

The charity, which provides free holidays to Lincolnshire children living with cancer and their families at its Mablethorpe caravans, has already selected 50 lucky recipients.

A further 50 tickets have now been opened up to the general public

Tickets will be available to anyone from Lincolnshire on a first come first served basis and will be the perfect surprise for a poorly child or relative deserving of a treat.

They added that those applying must be able to stand or be seated in a standard chair as there are no more disabled spots available. They must also organise their own transport.

To apply, people can contact the Sophie’s Journey Facebook page with their story, or email [email protected]

Sophie Robinson sadly died from a brain tumour in January 2016.

Sophie Robinson sadly passed away in January 2016, aged 12, after a two year battle with Medulloblastoma – an aggressive brain tumour.

Throughout her treatment, she documented her journey and raised £50,000 for charity.

Now, her family helps other children and their families going through cancer battles.

Mum Stacey Southwell said her aim is to bring Union J, one of Sophie’s favourite bands, to Lincoln.
