A Worle band has raised hundreds of pounds in support of one of their own.

The WorleWind Band hosted a pop-up fundraising concert in Weston last week to raise vital funds towards a life-saving surgery.

The band hosted the crowdfunding concert for Martin Boyd's wife Vivienne who has been stuck on her back since Christmas with a CSF Leak.

The event raised £1,000 for her to visit a specialist centre in Germany, which would cost the family £25,000 for the transport and treatment.

Band member Julia Ractliffe said: “At times, the evening became emotional and the love and support felt towards this wonderful family was felt throughout.

“The church hall at Seventh Day Adventist Church was not large and the band size was reduced to 30 from its normal 60 but all players gave their best for one of the nicest people we know.”
