SALISBURY bands covering hits from the Fab Four helped raise more than £800 for Salisbury Hospice Charity.

Let it be Beatles was held on Saturday, January 26, at The Chapel Nightclub and featured bands including The Intercepteurs, Big Dog, The Passenger Club, Head Back Holler and Pete Aves.

The event was organised by Thom Belk. He said: “The reason I’m supporting Salisbury Hospice Charity is my grandad sadly passed away in 2015 and the care that he received was absolutely phenomenal.

“The high number of workers up there that are voluntary is quite overwhelming but it’s absolutely fantastic. It’s a cause that means a lot to me personally and I think to a lot of people that attend these events as well. You know we probably know somebody, whether it’s a friend or family or maybe a colleague that’s had to use the hospice at some point.”

All of its services are free of charge to everyone who uses them, including individuals, their families, loved ones and carers. Annually Salisbury Hospice Charity needs to raise £1.5 million, more than 60 per cent of the £2.4 million needed to maintain the vital palliative care services at the hospice.
