Musical night is a success as £800 is raised

A fundraising night hit the right notes as more than £800 was raised for a charity.

More than 150 people turned up for a night of music, entertainment and dancing at LD:NorthEast’s annual Evening of Music.

The event helped us to raise funds towards the running costs of our Big Lottery, Reaching Communities Funded ‘Tomorrows’ project

Among the acts at the event – held at the Lindisfarne Social Club in Wallsend – were Northern Notes, Richard Gardner and Seaham Music Academy Ceilidh band.

There were also performances from singer/songwriter Pete Scott and Lee Paver.

Chief executive David Robinson said: “I have previously said that music is a big thing here at LD:NorthEast and I was delighted not only with how many people attended the evening, but how much fun everyone had.

“The event helped us to raise funds towards the running costs of our Big Lottery, Reaching Communities Funded ‘Tomorrows’ project, which supports the wellbeing of older people with learning disabilities.

“It was extremely generous of all of the acts, volunteers and staff to give us their time and effort to make the night so good.”
