The organisers of a feast of live music in aid of the Great North Air Ambulance (GNAA) have thanked all those who supported the event.

Chopper Fest at Felmoor Park, which was arranged by Louise Currie, Sandra Davidson and Edith Sanderson, saw a mix of bands and artists play in a marquee.

Headline act Steve Daggett, who was in Lindisfarne for a spell in the 1980s and is part of the new line-up for the band (Ray Jackson’s Lindisfarne), also performed in the clubhouse in the evening.

After handing over the proceeds – £1,900 – to the charity, Edith, Louise and Sandra said: “Our thanks go to the eight bands and artists who played for free (the others were Scratch, Paul & Rich, Gary Featherstone, Dead Man’s Shoes, Dead Hand, RUDI and Snakehead).

“We also wish to thank all those people who came along to support us.”
