REGULARS and music lovers have raised nearly £330 to help families whose children are in hospital.
The cash was raised at a musical bonanza, featuring seven tribute bands, at Sale's Brooklands Tap in Hope Road on July 27.
The funds were donated to Ronald McDonald House Charities at Royal Manchester Children's Hospital, which specialises in offering facilities for families whose children are patients there.
Facilities include accommodation, a kitchen, a bathroom,communal rooms, play rooms, a television room and access to garden space.
Landlord Glenn Taylor and his partner Lai Jim, who have already raised thousands of pounds for charities in the North West, are delighted.
"Being in hospital can be a traumatic experience for some youngsters," said Glenn. "Having their parents close at hand to comfort them is a real blessing."
Lai said: "I agree and both Glenn and I are grateful to all those who made donations."
Glenn handed the funds to Sarah Jackson, fundraising administrator at Ronald McDonald House, at the pub on August 13.
Mike Fairley, house manager at the Ronald McDonald House, at the pub, said: "This donation will provide 13 nights of facilities for a family or families.
"A big thank you to Glenn, Lai and all of those who contributed."
