As part of the regular programme of Music Nights at Sunbury Cricket Club, there was a special event on Friday 10th March held to raise money for the Mayor of Spelthorne’s Charities. (scroll down to see article of 27th February). This year’s Mayor is Sunbury East councillor Alfred Friday, and he was there with his wife Kaye to enjoy a high-energy show from an agglomeration of a dozen or more rock musicians from the local fraternity, who performed as The Chain Gang, in honour of the Mayor’s chain of office, giving their services free so that all the money raised went to the charities.

Over 130 people were there, and, with the proceeds of the raffle included, the amount raised was £1670, which will go to the Mayor’s three nominated charities for the year - Parkinson’s UK (Spelthorne Branch), One-To-One, which organises social activities for adults with learning disabilities, and Home Start Spelthorne, which supports struggling young families with children.

Music Night organiser Paul Watts said: “It’s great that we’ve got so many top class musicians both in Sunbury and from around the area who are prepared to give their time and energy for a project like this, and it’s equally gratifying that so many people from within the community came to support the event. It was a fun night, as well as being for a good cause.”
