An impressive line-up of Suffolk musical talent took part in an online music festival in aid of families living with autism and ADHD.
The event, organised by Daniel Harvey, smashed its £1,500 target within hours and has now raised nearly £2,000.
The musicians taking part included Ben Goble, Murray Collins, Dionne Clarke, Adam Walden, Joe G, Adam Thomas, Coran Elsey, Andi Hopgood, Tallulah Goodtimes, Josh Locke and Justine de Mierre.
The money raised will go to help Suffolk-based social enterprise Autism & ADHD keep its vital free telephone helpline service running.
Daniel said: “It was an absolute joy to run and it warmed my soul seeing the enjoyment and impact of the day evolve in front of me. I’m in total awe of all of the wonderful performers that joined my side for a great cause. They were incredible and completely broke away the illusion that we were behind screens, it generally felt like we were there with them!’’
