Bands to play at charity gig

LOCAL bands The Vipers and Neon Railroad are giving up their time for free to perform at a charity event in Buxton.

The ‘Thompy Stomp!’ will be held at The Railway Hotel on Saturday November 3, from 8pm until late.

Money raised from the event will be donated to The Spinal Injuries Trust in memory of Buxton resident Richard Thompson. Richard, who suffered with a debilitating back condition, sadly died last year.

Sister Gina Sheppard said: “We want to raise as much as possible in Richard’s memory, and also raise awareness of the charity. Few people realise how debilitating an illness it can be and how much people suffer.”

Tickets, priced £3, are available from Gina on 078121 68925 or Steve on 07917 207003.
