Talented musicians hit all the right notes at a charity event in Pocklington.

Held at Simply JJ’s bar, on Market Street, the event attracted a good turnout and was held in aid of the Congenital Myotonic Dystrophy Fight Fund.

The fund aims to raise funds strictly for research into treatments for myotonic dystrophy, a muscle-wasting condition. The event featured a raffle, which raised £200 for the fund.

Pocklington resident Catherine Gledhill organised the fundraiser to help her friend Sarah Ruane, who is raising awareness of the condition.

Musicians who performed at the event include Mike Gled-
hill, John Avery, Tony Haynes, Carrie Martin and Donald Nelson. The audience were also entertained by poet Richard Harries.

Mrs Gledhill said: “There was a fantastic turnout, and fabulously talented musicians gave it their all, the raffle raised £200 and there is more coming in from a gig my husband Mike Gledhill is doing, and donating his fee.

“Many thanks to all who attended and made it such a fantastic afternoon, and not forgetting our very own Pocklington town crier who opened and closed the event with such gusto and style.”
