Charity gig

LOCAL band Purple Cloud of Funk are to perform at a charity gig in Buxton next week.

The event will be held in the Orchestra Pit at the Old Hall Hotel on Friday October 28, from 8.30pm, helping raise money for the road safety charity Brake in memory of Buxton woman Beth Fitton, who was killed in a car accident near Tideswell in 2007.

Beth’s brother Tom has already raised over £2,000 after recently completing a gruelling 1,000-mile bike ride from John O’Groats to Lands End in nine days. People can still support him by visiting

Tickets for the charity gig are priced £5 and available either on the door or by calling Ruby on 07970 868 018.
