Elastic Band enjoys good events in Newcastle

SIR, — The Elastic Band appeared twice on the streets of Newcastle before Christmas.

The collection, which this year went to Concern, amounted to £182 on the first day and £152 on the second, making a grand total of £334.

We were delighted to welcome a new young player to the band — Chris Polland whose guitar playing impressed not only the older members of the band but everyone on the street.

Congratulations to all who sang and all who played and a happy new year to all who contributed to the charity.

Yours etc.,
