Day and night music, hog roast and fundraising at The Volunteer, Sidmouth

A DAY and night of music, hog roasting and fundraising at The Volunteer, Sidmouth, last month, has raised £3,119 for Cancer Research.

Music was at the centre of events with The Freak Brothers playing their usual blend of Hendrix, Stones and rock and roll.

Participant Ian Hanson said: “The generosity of the bands in giving their time for free on a Saturday, when usually they are at paying gigs, was a key factor.”

There were so many supporters that by mid afternoon the burgers, supplied by Hayman’s Butchers, and hog roast, donated by Keith Trivett and Chris Pike – cooked by Jason Stiling – were soon demolished.
