A COVERS band packed out a Bishop’s Waltham pub to raise money for two Hampshire charities.

The Who What Wheres pulled in the crowds at The Priory Inn, Winchester Road, for a charity gig.

They were playing to raise cash for the 3K4K team.

The team is a group of 10 cyclists who plan to cycle 1,200 miles from Bishop’s Waltham to the three peaks – Snowdon in Wales, Scafell Pike in the Lake District and Ben Nevis in Scotland – in July.

They aim to complete the challenge in 16 days, which will mean daily rides of more than 100 miles.

The cyclists are raising money for Leukaemia Busters and the Piam Brown Ward, both from Southampton.

The Who What Wheres band member Danny Jeffs said: ‘We really enjoyed it – what a great night all for a wonderful cause.

‘Good luck to the 3K4kKteam for the ride, we are with you all the way.’

3K4K cyclist and engineer in the Royal Navy Submarine service, Andy Henson, said: ‘We are extremely grateful to The Who What Wheres for supporting our challenge; they certainly rocked the place Saturday night, they were brilliant.’

The gig raised £205.
