Chatteris pub raises around �150 for Help for Heroes charity with folk music marathon

THE Honest John pub in Chatteris raised around �150 for the Help for Heroes charity after holding a 12-hour folk music marathon.

The ‘Folk and Acoustic Sing-around’ saw a number of musicians, including Alan Francis and Pat Crilly, perform at various times throughout the day.

Admission was free to the public who helped raise the money alongside the acts who had paid to perform in the event.

Richard Savage, landlord of the Honest John pub, said: “It’s a charity that we have supported before and we believe it’s well worthwhile because a lot of the men and women come back from service and need some help.

“Stars of the folk scene from Norfolk, Suffolk, Cambridgeshire, London and other areas came together to help raise the money and a great day was had by all.”
