THE Skegness Silver Band staged a concert in the town’s St Matthews Church last week to raise cash for local charity Keith’s Rescue Dogs.

It was the second year that the band has held the event in the church.

The evening featured popular classics, including a solo by Emma Gent, and was directed by the band’s MD Richard Walker and introduced by Rev Julie Donn.

A spokesperson said: “The audience warmed to two hours of music including No Matter What from Whistle Down the Wind through soloist Emma Gent’s rendition of Donegal Bay by Paul Lovatt-Cooper.

“A selection of James Bond themes by John Barry was also performaed and the concert ended with an American Trilogy arranged by Goff Richards.”

The concert rasied £407 for the charity. Keith’s Rescue Dogs has moved to thank the band.

The charity currently has more than 60 dogs on its books and costs around £1,500 a week to run. Everyone who helps the charity is a volunteer so all the cash raised goes to the welfare of the dogs.
