be­yond who are be­ing treated for can­cer and other se­ri­ous dis­eases.

Fiona Wil­son, of the Team Jak Foun­da­tion said: “We are de­lighted to be work­ing with Dread­noughtRock in Bath­gate to stage our first ever Rock for Team Jak on Satur­day.

“This event is to raise aware­ness of our char­ity Team Jak Foun­da­tion and to hope­fully raise a load of money to help young peo­ple fight­ing can­cer and help us sup­port their fam­i­lies.

“Apart from a su­perb night of live mu­sic from the amaz­ing White Doves with Amy Hawthorn, any­one at­tend­ing can also win a pair of tick­ets for the 2019 Party at the Palace.

“Ev­ery­one who buys an en­try ticket will be en­tered. So whether you have bought on­line, from an out­let or paid to get in on the night you have a chance to win.

“There are still tick­ets avail­able via Skid­dle or from the var­i­ous out­lets or by con­tact­ing Team Jak Foun­da­tion.”

Jak’s mum Al­li­son Barr set up the Team Jak Foun­da­tion and opened Jak’s Den in Liv­ingston in De­cem­ber 2015 pro­vid­ing emo­tional, so­cial and prac­ti­cal sup­port to chil­dren and young peo­ple age 0-25 from all over Scot­land who have been di­ag­nosed with can­cer or a a re­lated ill­ness.

The fa­cil­ity also pro­vides sup­port for fam­i­lies and friends or who have sadly been be­reaved and was Jak’s dream while he re­ceived treat­ment.

The teenager passed away af­ter a brave bat­tle with rare can­cer Gama Delta T-Cell Lym­phoma aged 15 in 2015.
