EVENING Star cartoonist Jock Davies drew in a large crowd at the Ipswich Caribbean Club to raise cash for charity.

Jock, accompanied by singing star The Hatman, performed two half-an-hour sets during an evening in aid of The Ormiston Charity.

The Woodbridge Road venue was near capacity as The Hatman took to the stage to perform some excellent cover versions.

He started with David Gray's Babylon, before taking a step back in time with Bob Dylan and Kinks covers.

Crowd favourites Like A Rolling Stone and Lay Lady Lay went down a storm as money was collected around the crowd.

Meanwhile, talented Jock went round the crowd taking requests for cartoons and charging punters a small fee for his witty sketches.
