MUSIC lovers raised almost £1,000 for a counselling service.

Musicians from across Portsmouth united to give a free day-long concert in aid of Off The Record, which is under threat because of funding cuts.

Organiser Joe Conway said: ‘All the acts were amazing and we had a great crowd in.

‘We raised a total of £910.45 so we’re obviously happy with the first fundraising gig we’ve done.

‘The two bands at the end, Lucifer’s Gold and Day of the Rabblement, really got the crowds going and everyone had a great time.’
