SHOPPERS got into the spirit of Comic Relief with the help of Hayling Huggers ukulele band.

The band were invited to perform at the Co-op, in Hayling Island, on Red Nose Day last Friday, and they entertained customers with old favourites and more modern songs.

They raised more than £200 for the charity.

Alan Bartlett of the Hayling Huggers said: ‘The band and Comic Relief thank the generosity of Hayling Islanders, and the Huggers thank all of them and The Southern Co-operative store for their warm welcome.’

The Huggers are holding their first open-to-all get together at the Lifeboat Inn on Hayling seafront on Monday, June 3 from 7.30pm to 10pm and every first Monday in the month. All welcome. Call (023) 9243 0620 for details.
