Music fans dug deep to raise £900 for a children’s cancer charity with an afternoon of bands at a Stowmarket pub.
The Gig at the Glad took place at the Gladstone Arms in Combs Ford and featured a mix of local musicians and artists, including Ipswich-based headline act Jade MayJean.
The event was in aid of CLIC Sargent, which helps young people being treated for cancer and their families.
Collection buckets were boosted by an auction of items including a signed Ipswich Town FC shirt and ball, an embroidered quilt made by Stowmarket embroiderer Jenny Stenning, and old bikes refurbished for free by Barton Bikes of Stowmarket.
The Gladstone Arms sponsored the event and put on a special ale from which £1 for every pint sold went to the collection.
