ON AUGUST 16, Billy Gallacher will don his Elvis outfit for the 30th - and final - year to raise money for healthcare charity Scannappeal.

Billy and the Bonquas have been playing the annual gig every summer, showcasing all the king of Rock n Roll’s hits to raise money for the charity.

But this year’s concert, which will take place at Hazlemere Community Centre in Rose Avenue at 7.30pm, will be lifelong Elvis fan Billy’s final outing on the stage after 30 years.

He said: “We have got to draw the line somewhere and we thought we would do it while we are still having a great time.

“Elvis died when he was 42 and this year it is 42 years since he died so it seems like the right time.”

Billy has a whole room in his house dedicated to Elvis.

This year’s concert will be held on the anniversary of Elvis’ tragic death.

Billy and the Bonquas have raised more than £40,000 for Scannappeal since they started their concerts.

Scannappeal raises cash to buy vital lifesaving equipment for Amersham, Stoke Mandeville, Wycombe and Community Hospitals.

Tickets for the final ‘Elvis - The King Remembered’ show are £12.50 and are available from scannappeal.org.uk or directly from Billy on 01494 439912.
