Mike Lightfoot Music memorial and celebration of his life.

Chelmsford City Football Club, Salerno Way, Chelmsford

This event is to celebrate the life of and to remember our good friend Mike Lightfoot 25-4-1962 to 13-12-2018 who was sadly taken from us far too early in his life. Dave Milligan put it perfectly "Be More Like Mike Enjoy Your Life Live Your Life".

We are charging an entry fee of £10 as we are raising monies for both the cardiac unit in Basildon and the British Heart Foundation as Mike sadly died from a heart attack.

Mike was a lover all types of music and you regularly saw him at gigs and he would often be would be spinning the discs from his vast and varied music collection at the New Crawdaddy and Blues & Roots in the City he also often wrote articles for various music publications as well as being a presenter on Saint FM. Mike was also a massive and passionate football fan his first team was Manchester United and he was a long time season ticket holder was for Southend United he was also a qualified referee. Mike's other big passion and interest were in the Trade Unions he held office for many years in the Customs and Excise Trade Union who he worked for most of life. He was the best friend you could have he was always there when you needed him and his laugh as one friend described so aptly was a cross between Sid James and Mutley (it makes me smile just to remember that).

Please do come along and help celebrate Mike's life with his family and friends. We know Mike will be with us in spirit as this is a gig he would not miss for anything.
