Cheque for £527 presented to Tom Chubb memorial appeal for improvements to Axminster skatepark
An Adele tribute concert at Kilmington raised £527 for the Axminster skatepark improvement fund in memory of car crash victim Tom Chubb.
The event, at The Cranberries Hideaway, on Saturday, March 2, featured the singer Jennifer Giles.
She performed the star’s most popular hits including ‘Someone Like You’, ‘Rolling in the Deep’ and ‘Make you feel my Love.’
Money from wristband sales and money raised on the night was donated to the Axminster skatepark appeal, launched in memory of Axminster teenager Tom Chubb who died, aged 18, in a car accident in November.
Pictured handing over the cheque to Tom’s mother, Eve, is Steven Littley, owner of Cranberries Luxury Hideaway.
He said that Cranberries will continue to support this local cause.
