MORE than 130 people were entertained at a gig which raised around £1,000 for a memorial garden in Gosport.
Revellers at the Royal Navy Submarine Museum, in Haslar Road, Gosport, enjoyed music at the Museum at Night: Unplugged gig.
Gosport’s Battle of the Bands winners Kelly and the Acoustics headlined, entertaining the 135 music-lovers.
Stuart Lovibond, 18, from Gosport-based youth group Loud and Proud, helped organise the night.
He said: ‘It was a really nice atmosphere, everyone was really enjoying themselves.
‘There was music for everybody, rather than just for old people or young people.
‘We managed to create quite a nice atmosphere, no matter what there age was.
‘It was an almost sold-out event.’
The final total has not yet been calculated but Stuart said around £1,100 had been raised.
The cash will go to revamping the memorial garden at the submarine museum.
Stuart added: ‘At the moment it’s quite a grey and dull place.
‘So what they’re doing now with that money is putting a garden in there.
‘People come from all over the world to see relatives’ names and it’s emotional.’
The museum is also undertaking a huge project to refurbish a Second World War era submarine, HMS Alliance.
