Two school friends have raised £5000 by selling a CD of their music for Lisa’s Fund in aid of the Arthur Rank Hospice Charity.
Guitarist Charlie O Connor and singer Molly Armstrong, both 17, produced the CD to help fund the end of life care charity.
With the help of their family and the support of Robert, the duo produced the CD with the aim that all funds raised would go towards the new hospice build.
They have set themselves a target of £10,000.
Dr Lynn Morgan, CEO at the Arthur Rank Hospice Charity, said: “Molly and Charlie are very talented and it is to their tremendous credit that they have used their talent to raise money for our new hospice. We are enormously grateful.”
