Raising Cash... And All That Jazz

A Radio Clatterbridge volunteer has helped raise hundreds of pounds for one of our favourite good causes.

Becky Hardman organised a musical extravaganza in aid of The Clatterbridge Cancer Charity.

The Chester City Jazz Orchestra performed at the event at Neston Civic Hall at the weekend.

Becky says she noticed the charity during her weekly request collections for Live From The Bridge and simply wanted to help.

She managed to raise an impressive £700 for the charity.

Becky says she couldn't have done it without the help of her sister Eve and friend Joanne Fearnley on the night.

"A massive thank you to everyone that came to support the cause and to the band that provided superb entertainment for the night and had everyone up on their feet!" Becky Hardman, organiser

Becky hopes to raise even more cash for the charity in the future.
