Open mic night raises funds for Alexander Devine

Singing sisters and a pub joined forces and raised £1,700 for the Alexander Devine Children's Hospice Service.

The Skin & Blister Sisters hosted a fundraising open mic session at The Boatman in Thames Side on Sunday.

The band, made up of singers Avril Appleyard and Rosie Scott, invited performers to take to the stage for a good cause.

On the day 18 talented performers took part and raised the cash through donations and raffle.

Avril said: “It was a fun afternoon for a great local cause.

“We have also been in the studio recording a Christmas CD, of which a percentage of the profits will also be donated to the fundraising effort.”
