Article about Billy Boyd at the Eilidh charity concert

beeecakeStars in tribute to cancer victim Eilidh

Jan 17 2011

LORD of the Rings star Billy Boyd played at the weekend at a concert to honour a girl of 15 who fell victim to cancer.

And rocker Jon Fratelli flew in from America to perform at the gig for Eilidh Brown.

Billy is a close friend of Eilidh’s family and signed up “without hesitation” when her dad organised the fund-raising concert.

After playing with his band, Beecake, he said: “It’s been a very emotional night.”

Eilidh died of rare germ cell cancer last March. Dad Gordon, who acted in High Road and went to drama school with Billy, is raising cash to build a respite home for child cancer patients and their families.

Saturday’s sellout concert at the MacRobert Theatre in Stirling raised about £15,000.

Gordon, 39, of Stirling, said: “It’s taken seven months to put this together and it’s great seeing it coming to fruition. The support’s been amazing.

“The first question Eilidh would have asked is, ‘Why are they doing this for me?’ She was a very modest girl.”
