Fenland musician and friends raise money for Charlotte’s Way with charity gig
A MUSICIAN and his friends held a fundraising gig at a Fenland pub in aid of a road safety campaign.
Trevor Hogg and friends performed rock ’n’ roll and punk song at the Lamb and Flag, in Welney, for the Fenland Road Safety Campaign (Charlotte’s Way).
Included in the playlist were tracks from a self-written charity album which was recorded by Mr Hogg with Lee Whiteway and Liam McCabe under the stage name Charlotte’s Lemon Flag.
Copies of the album, titled In a Nightmare, Living the Dream, were sold on the night to raise funds. Songs from the album were also performed at the event.
The band and charity were formed in memory of Charlotte Walker, who died almost four years ago when the car she was travelling in plunged into the Sixteen Foot Drain.

Mr Hogg, who has terminal lung cancer, said: “We called the band Charlotte’s Lemon Flag as Charlotte, who inspired the formation of the campaign, used to say to her dad Andy ‘are you going to the Lemon Flag dad’ instead of the Lamb and Flag.”
The album has raised �250 so far but Mr Hogg hopes to raise a further �750. It is available for a �5 from our office in March with all proceeds going towards the campaign’s push for barriers along riverside roads.

Graham Chappell, campaign organiser, said: “A fantastic time was had by all and Trevor was absolutely brilliant. He is an outstanding example of what can be achieved, despite all adversity.
“The gig was the culmination of many months of painstaking work and dedication by Trevor, in spite of the incredible challenge of being diagnosed with terminal cancer.”
Mr Hogg also performed with his old band Carte Blanche and a number of guest performers, including country band Southern Discomfort, thrilled the audience.
