Students from South Downs College have organised a gig to raise funds for the Cycstic Fibrosis Trust.

It will take place at the Edge of the Wedge at the Wedgewood Rooms in Albert Road, Southsea on Tuesday at 7.30pm.

Playing on the night will be local bands Velvetine, The Cartels, and Lock ‘N’ Load.

Organising a charity gig is part of the music performance Btec Level 3 Diploma taught at the college.

Each year a different charity is chosen by a student vote.

This year the selected charity was nominated by 17-year-old musician Tom Rackliff, who said: ‘I nominated the Cystic Fibrosis Trust as my girlfriend has cystic fibrosis and I know what a difficult and complicated disease it is.’

Tickets for the gig will be available on the door for £5 or in advance for £4.

There will be a clothing stall from Poor Maggie Clothing, and a raffle with a first prize of a ‘Gear 4 Music’ electric guitar. Tickets can be bought at Call the college on (023) 9279 7911 to find out more.
