Ely rocker Bernie Sawford and his band The 142s are set to headline a gig raising money for autism awareness.

The group will perform a live set as part of the Autism Rocks Roadshow taking place at Stuntney Social Club on March 29.

The event will also feature fellow rockers The Wasteland Angels along with special guests.

Bass guitarist Bernie, of Silver Street, said: “There are only 100 tickets available and we would like to see the club full so we can raise as much money as possible.

“We are hard-nosed rockers but we are rockers with a heart and every penny raised will go to the charity.”

Doors open at 7pm on the night and tickets are available priced £5. All funds raised will go to Anna Kennedy Online.

For more information, or for tickets, call 01353 668899.
