Willy Russell helps St Mary’s Church East Window Appeal
Celebrity dramatist, lyricist and composer Willy Russell, best known for Educating Rita, Blood Brothers and Shirley Valentine, generously donated items that were raffled at the sell-out concert held at Lesbury Village Hall on Saturday 10th June. The evening featured Misspent Uke, The Attic Band and Bob Bolam and was organised to raise funds for the East Window Appeal. It was a wonderful night of music and mirth enjoyed by an audience mainly from the villages of Lesbury and Alnmouth proving that local community spirit and cooperation is alive and well in this part of Northumberland. £ 465 was raised towards the Appeal.
