Jacky Paice, wife of Ian Paice, drummer from Deep Purple, set up the Sunflower Jam Charity in 2006 to help people treat Cancer within the UCLH. Now the charity raises acceptance of an integrated approach in medical treatment. By educating, supporting, informing and developing services around patient-centric care. By bringing together Doctors, Health Professionals, Scientists and Patients along side an array of musicians who not only perform but support the cause, we can create a wider network of support and raise awareness through our event.

The charity will work by supporting initiatives set up to bridge the gap between integrated, functional and conventional medicine with a natural approach to wellness for children, young people, adults and their families with a range of acute and chronic emotional, mental and physical conditions.

Founder Jacky Paice says, "As time has gone on, we have learnt so much about what can be done to help treat Cancer in a natural way. I am honored to be hosting my 6th annual event this year. Personally, this is the most important year for raising awareness and funds as the percentage of people being diagnosed with Cancer is rising."

Jon Lord previous member of Deep Purple is one of the trustees and active supporters of the charity, says: "I am thrilled to be taking part in the SJ again. It is wonderful to have so much musical enjoyment whilst supporting such an exciting and visionary charity. Long may it thrive."

Bruce Dickinson of Iron Maiden said: “Sunflower Jam is a great night out and a fabulous meeting of musical styles and personalities for a unique and very worthy cause."

More artists will be announced over the coming weeks so watch this space for more details.
