Charity event strikes a chord!

A CHARITY Hunmanby music event proved a big hit with crowds - despite the wet weather threatening to put a dampener on proceedings.

Scores of music fans turned out for Cottage Aid, as nine bands took to the stage in Cross Hill for a full day of rock and roll action.

Organisers have confirmed the charity pot currently stands around £3,000, which will be donated to Cancer Research UK and another cause yet to be announced.

They also added the day was a huge success despite the late cancellation of planned flypasts by a Spitfire, Chipmunk and Condor planes and the RAF Sea King helicopter due to the leaden skies overhead.

Linda Pickard, one of the organisers of the annual event, said: “It went really well but it was a shame about the weather which meant we couldn’t have the flypasts.

“That was disappointing but you have to remember their safety and it was still a good day.

“The bands were absolutely awesome and everyone had a great time.”

Organisers have revealed they still have items for sale which were not auctioned on the day, including a t-shirt signed by all nine bands and a CD and t-shirt from headline act, Twisted.

Anyone who is interested in the items should contact Linda on 07870 542892.
