Rain interrupted an annual charity busk in Woodbridge – but not before the fundraising five-piece collected £250 for a good cause.

The Rotary Club of Woodbridge Deben held the annual charity event in the town’s Thoroughfare.

This year marked the 30th anniversary of the busk, which was originally run by Woodbridge Round Table.

Three of the original band members, Graham Mole, Dennis Bowron and Martin Kenyon, were on duty, along with new members, David Leney and Julian Taylor.

Mr Kenyon said: “All was going well until the heavens opened – at which point, amplifiers and instruments were hastily packed away. This meant the busk had to be abandoned, but not before £250 had been collected.

“Our thanks once again go to Fat Face for allowing us to use their power supply; to Costa Coffee for providing shelter from the elements, and the people of Woodbridge for their generosity.”
