Wistaston Church Hall Charity Concert In Aid Of Alder Hey

A charity concert in aid of Alder Hey Children’s Charity took place on the evening of Saturday 8th March 2014 at St Mary’s Church Hall in Wistaston.

Five-piece Liverpool band ‘Ukebox’ played a set featuring an eclectic range of music including Mumford & Sons, Johnny Cash, ELO, George Formby, Rihanna and Pharrell Williams.

Alder Hey Children’s Charity was chosen by Wistaston Rose Queen Naomi Barker

The band formed in 2012 and had the audience up on their feet and clapping and singing along to their tunes.

There was a raffle during the interval which was drawn by Wistaston Rose Queen Naomi Barker and her Attendant Poppy Bellingham. Refreshments were available throughout the evening.

The concert was followed by a disco.

A full house of one hundred and forty people enjoyed the event which raised £865 for Alder Hey Children’s Charity.

Co-organiser Howard Barker said:
“What a brilliant concert, Ukebox were loved by everyone.

My thanks to all our volunteers and to Cheerbrook Farm Shop for their delicious pork pies.”

Wistaston Rose Queen Naomi Barker said:
“It was a great night and I’m really pleased so many people came.”
