THE Railway Hotel is going to be heaving on Saturday with an all-day line-up of non-stop music, all in aid of the Keith Mann fund.

Keith Mann – an animal rights campaigner and writer – is fighting cancer via “the Gerson cure” – an alternative, non-toxic treatment for cancer and other chronic degenerative diseases – and needs financial help for the therapy.

Admission will be free, but donations will be collected.

Music is going on downstairs in the main bar and upstairs, starting at 1pm.

The Railway Hotel – itself a renowned vegan and vegetarian restaurant which regularly supports animals rights campaigns and events – is in Clifftown Road, Southend. Organiser Eddie Bammeke has got the event together under the banner Dirty Bubble.

He said: “Keith Mann is a role model for people like myself – the modern generation of 40-somethings. He is a hero to all animal activists and it’s a pleasure to hold an event to raise money for alternative medicine for his battle against cancer. It is also an important message about alternative medicines that can help the worldwide battle against all cancers deadly to mankind.”
