A CHARITABLE Ipswich man is organising a night of music to raise money for a campaign aimed at supporting vulnerable young people in the town.

Four bands will take to the stage at The Railway in Foxhall Road tomorrow with a collection raising cash for the Somebody's Daughter appeal.

Music promoter Mike Osborne, of Downing Close, is behind the gig, which begins at 7pm.

He said: “The event will be an opportunity to raise awareness of the appeal and raise some cash through collections on the night.”
