A popular band reunited for a charity gig and raised an incredible £1,300 for the British Heart Foundation.

Performing together for the first time in seven years, were ‘No Claims’ lead singer Neil Lindfield, lead guitarist and vocalist Kelin ‘the fidget’ Rollitt, Nick ‘nicky boy’ Newsum on keyboard, Neil ‘sooty’ Bailey on drums and vocals, percussionist and vocalist Neil ‘sfb’ Lindfield, Ian ‘loba’ Dobbs on bass guitar and vocals, and guitarist and vocalist Steve ‘careful’ Cotton.

The band have played across the local counties for over 20 years, and decided to reunite in order to raise money for the BHF, who have long supported lead singer Neil’s family.

It was a sell-out gig at the Grantham Squash and Fitness Centre, with the crowd dancing away to music from the 60s, 70s, 80s and 90s, with songs ranging from Glam Rock and Tom Jones to Black Sabbath.

Neil said: “The band were in great form, as if we’d never been away, and may hopefully do something similar in the near future.”

They would like to thank everyone who donated and the club for providing the venue.
