A WORLD famous rapper is launching a new Gravesend nightclub to raise funds for a seven-year-old cancer sufferer who needs life-saving treatment.

Gravesend girl Stacey Mowle requires £500,000 to pay for her to be flown to the US to receive pioneering treatment for her condition.

So far the appeal has raised £80,000, and Gravesend’s newest nightspot is donating the proceeds from its launch weekend, which includes a live performance from Chip.

The star, formerly known as Chipmunk, is poised to take to the stage at the CC Rooms on Saturday evening. (June 29)

Laura Prodrick, media and events manager for the Heritage Quarter nightspot, said: "When The Stacey Mowle Appeal approached us to support their charity it was a no brainer.

"We are proud to contribute to towards the goals of the appeal and would encourage all patrons who attend CC Rooms this weekend or in the future to contribute towards the achievement of the Stacey Mowle Appeal’s goals."

Stacey is suffering from the final stages of Neuroblastoma cancer which attacks the nervous system.

Only pioneering treatment will save Stacey. No Government grants are available and Cancer Research only assigns 1per cent of its funding to childhood cancer research.

Comedian Joe Pasquale is a patron of the appeal.

This Friday entry is free for all customers who text their name, plus up to one guest to 07940 020 081 by noon on Friday. Doors open at 10pm.

All guests will be asked to make a minimum donation to the charity of £1. Entertainment on the night includes Kiss FM’s Pioneer, Crazy Cousins, DJ Play and Def Jams James Brown.

The following night Chip is starring alongside Choice FM’s DJ Woody, Wiley’s official DJ Top T. Entry is £7 in advance or £10 on the night.
