Weymouth & Portland Lions roared back after a year’s absence with their ever-popular live music street busk.
The Lions entertained the Weymouth crowds with a wide variety of live music events, including Replay, Julie Storey’s ‘Let’s Dance’, Abbi Brewster, Anniemac & Norman, Tony Lowe, Ed Hintze, Wyke Ukedelics, Brian Lincoln, solo guitarist, Ken Watkins and, for the first time supporting the Lions fundraiser, were the Dark Descendants, a talented group of young musicians from All Saints.
Kevin Brookes, current President of the Club, told KeeP 106: “We were delighted to be back. The sun shone on us and we raised over £600. I think it would be fair to say that Weymouth was buzzing with the sound of live music. Clearly everyone enjoyed being out and about and entertained with such an eclectic mix”.
Julie Storey, Vice-President, and Norman Stagles were the organising committee. “We were thrilled with the turn out. We are lucky to be supported by so many fantastic acts who give their time free to help us raise monies every year so we can support our local community”, said Julie.
Lion, Hilary Maxwell, added, “Mitchell’s ice creams kept the Lions’ team cool with free ice-creams on the day for which we were very grateful.”
Kevin added, “We are simply ordinary people doing amazing things”. We are always looking for enthusiastic members who want to give up some time to support their community or simply raise funds to support us”.
Weymouth and Portland Lions raise money to support the local community.
