The Smugglers raise £287 for Devon Air Ambulance
Fundraising by the Seaton Ukulele Band – The Smugglers - has helped the Devon Air Ambulance to the tune of £287.
The group handed a cheque to the charity’s local supporters, Kim Buckley and Paul Parkes at a ceremony in the Hook and Parrot pub last week.
The Smugglers were formed in February 2017 and currently consist of seven members: Paul Grinter, Tracey Grinter, Mick Swann, Sandra Swann, Tony Smith, Susan Minhall and Kevin Rye.
They meet every Tuesday afternoon, 2pm to 4pm at the Number One Centre, in Seaton, where they practice a wide range of mainly fun, happy music from the 60s, 70s and 80s.
They are available for local gigs and although they play for free, they do ask for a donation for the Devon Air Ambulance.
Their motto is “Music4You.Money4Charity!”
You can see them playing at the Seaton Artisan Market on the first Saturday of each month until September between 11am and 1pm, as well as various other local events.
