Band strikes silver for hospice

A COMEBACK gig to celebrate a band’s 25th anniversary has raised more than £1,000 for charity.

Before the Mast got back together for a special event at the Alnwick Gate pub in aid of HospiceCare North Northumberland.

The band got guests up on the dance floor with renditions of favourite tunes from 25 years ago.

Community fund-raiser for the hospice, Julie Mawer said: “We would like to say a big thank-you to everyone who attended, especially the band and Richie whose nerves nearly got the better of him.

“Also a big thank-you to Kevin, manager of The Gate, for allowing us to use his venue and for his kind donation and everyone who also donated to HospiceCare North Northumberland on the night.”
