Local woman Debbie Deboo is helping to organise a musical showcase to raise much needed funds for ‘Chronically Fabulous’, a project which aims to promote body confidence for those with a chronic illness or disability.

The first Chronically Fabulous Roasdshow of 2017 takes place in Belfast later this month and it promises a wonderful musical evening of great local talent, headlined by brilliant rock band Elevation Falls, recent winners of the Hard Rock Rising (Hard Rock Cafe) for Ireland 2016.

Chronically Fabulous is a not-for-profit fashion and photography project, based near Moira, which promotes body positivity for the chronically ill and/or disabled.

It offers ‘Chronically Fabulous Days’, which are completely free to those taking part, and provides a full make-over with styling and a photoshoot with a professional team of make-up artists, stylists and photographers to allow those who are often sadly on the fringes of society due to illness or disability to be centre-stage and receive free digital photographs and a goodie bag with gifts donated by local businesses and artists.

‘Pamper packs’ are also sent to nominated people, who - completely unexpectedly - receive a selection of free gifts.

The Roadshow will be raising much-needed funds for this very rewarding project.

As well as Elevation Falls, the musical line-up includes established and up-and-coming performers including Dale Armstrong, poet Elizabeth McGeown, Ballinderry band Murphy & Co, Tracy McConnell and Charlotte Sullivan.

There will also be a special performance by The Fabronics, formed from the ‘Chron Fab’ team and supporters, singing their very own song, ‘Chronically Fabulous Tonight’.

It is guaranteed to an amazing, fun-filled and very positive evening, with a wealth of talent on show for just £10.

The showcase will be taking place at the Ballyhackmore Social Club on Saturday May 20.
