SOME of Daventry’s best known musicians have come together to support a charity cause.

Fridays bar in Daventry’s High Street, will be hosting the charity event every Wednesday until July 31.

Each night two local acts will perform a set lasting 45 minutes between 8pm and10.30pm.

It is designed to support Abbi Griffiths and Robyn Ward’s climb up Mount Kilimanjaro which they will be carrying out next year.

The pair, both from the Grange estate in Daventry felt inspired to raise money for Breast Cancer Care.

The decision to raise the funds came after Abbi’s mum was diagnosed with cancer last year and underwent a mastectomy to remove a stage three tumour from behind her breast.

On Wednesday this week Morning Chorus will be followed by Chris Moon. The former is a pop/rock band from Northamptonshire. Thieir songs tell stories of experience and emotion.

The following Wednesday will see a performance from Jack Halls and Guesty Unplugged.

On Wednesday, July 24, there will be performances from Isaac Brightmore and Tony Shaw while on the final night, Wednesday, July 31, Dan Buckland and Pat Currier will be playing.

There have already been two music nights in the series from which a total of £160 has been raised for the charity.

The duo have already carried out several events to raise funds including a spiritual evening and a shopping evening as well as a tattoo night.

They have managed to raise more than £5,000 so far and are hoping to have made £8,000 before they climb the mountain.
