FUNDRAISING concerts performed by Southsea musicians have been deemed a roaring success.

The Southsea Alternative Choir held a trio of Christmas concerts.

Throughout the concerts, a total of £1,400 was raised for Samuel’s Fund, which aims to provide life-changing domestic adaptations for a young boy with cerebral palsy.

The three dates began with a sell-out gig at the Royal Military Artillery Tavern in Eastney on Friday, December 16.

The band then embarked on a six-hour busking tour of Southsea on Saturday, December 17 in Osborne Road.

The final concert took place at Little Johnny Russell’s on Albert Road.

The choir performed their own unique take on The Beach Boys’ God Only Knows, The Pogues’ Fairytale of New York and Blur’s Tender to entertain the crowd.

The band is led by Stuart Scott and also features singer Adam Collier.
