A great night was had by all when two local teens put on a night of top local music to raise money for a great cause.

Queen Elizabeth’s High School student Grace Barley, 16, and friend Alex King invited acts such as Jonny Gleadell, Mist, Mad Man Sam, The Skelters, The Motorboats and even sister Mollie for a night of entertainment at Trinity Arts.

“The night went really well and we had a great crowd,” said Grace. “We raised over £300 for Project Playroom at Royal Orthopaedic Hospital in Birmingham. It’s where my sister Mollie was treated when she had a bone tumour in her leg. Money also goes to for Screw Cancer ancer, which raises money for St Barnabas Hospices. Alex chose this charity as it’s where his mother was treated for cancer before she died. I’d like to thank Lisa and all of the staff at Trinity Arts Centre, as well as Steve for taking photos, all of the bands who played and everyone who came along.”
