Midlands group “No Direction” has an average age of 75 but have as much energy now than ever. Recently the group ran gigs in support of Leukaemia Busters raising £1,213.75 through their efforts.

Founder of the group Dave Ellison said

No Direction was born out of a local Midlands choir called Good Company Singers. A group of us would go to the pub after rehearsals. One night I took my guitar along and that’s how we started. We perform hits from the 60’s and 70’s. Touch wood we are not showing any sign of slowing down!” He went on to say “The musical director of our choir heard us play one night and joked that since we were improving we should have called ourselves SOME Direction!

Dr David Flavell, Scientific Director of Leukaemia Busters commented:

The support of No Direction is deeply appreciated and makes an important contribution to our life saving research work. Thank you to all members of the group! Keep playing on!

Over the years No Direction has played in pubs, sports clubs, Birmingham Hospitals radio and on cancer wards at Birmingham Queen Elizabeth Hospital. They have raised money for various medical research charities and now luckily it’s the turn of Leukaemia Busters. Thank you No Direction for your much appreciated support of our important life-saving research.
