A Shot of the Dancefloor
The gig was sellout and raised over £2,000 for the Cornwall Air ambulance Trust Charity! Some great dancing too!
Freddy  Zapp with the Winner of the Guitar Auction
Apart from a raffle there was an auction for a guitar specially built, at no charge, by my friend Trevor Williamson and signed by Charlie Gracie. The auctioneer was Matt Shepherd of BBC Southwest and the winner is pictured with legendary Cornish DJ Freddy Zapp who compered the show. It was a great evening!
