A charity music gig with Bristol based Glam Rock Band FAB 208 was held on Saturday 20th February at Bristol St Andrews Bowling Club in Bishopston which helped raise £300 (plus Gift Aid).

The money raised will go to The Jessie May Trust, Bristol, South Gloucestershire and North Somerset. The charity provides care for children and young people who have a terminal illness.

It was attended by around 60 people and organised by Glen Wintle and Councillor Brian Mead of Filton who both expressed thanks to John Hughes, his band members and Bristol St Andrews for accepting the event to take part at the bowls club.

The Lord Mayor of Bristol Clare Campion-Smith and Consort Ian Campion-Smith, opened the event along side Alison Pavier, Trustee of The Jessie May Trust including support from Helen Mackie, Community & Events Fundraiser.

Clare Campion-Smith was then presented with a bouquet of flowers by Bristol St Andrews Bowling Club Secretary, Spencer Wintle.

An auction and raffle took place and the following organisation’s donated prizes: Bristol St Andrews BC, FAB 208,  Gloucestershire Cricket Club, Lancashire County Cricket Club, Weston Super Mare Grand Pier, Newport Fc, The Jane Austen Centre (Bath), Bristol Co-operative Party and donations from others in attendance on the night, helping raise much needed funds.
