A BANK Holiday extravaganza of music and fun has been organised by a pub in aid of The Rowans Hospice.

The fun starts at the Fox and Hounds in Stakes Hill Road, Waterlooville, on Friday night and continues into Sunday.

Seven local bands have agreed to play for free and on Saturday there will be a family fun day.

Customers have donated their talents and time to make it a success and local businesses have donated prizes for the raffle.

Prizes include £1,000 worth of Thomas Sanderson blinds, eight meals for two in local restaurants and even £100 worth of tattoos.

Manageress Kelly Sweeting said: ‘I’ve been amazed at how generous everyone has been.

‘Our wholesaler Cash and Carry has donated all the meat and even the napkins for the barbecue.

‘The highlight for me will be the balloon release at 3pm on Saturday. Everyone has paid £3 each for a balloon.

‘People are being so generous because The Rowans has a special place in most peoples’ hearts.’
