A rock tribute event has been hailed a success after raising more than £1,200 for charity.

The sold out event, featured Hammerhead, a top local band alongside headliners for the evening was the UK’s top Black Sabbath tribute show, Sabbra Cadabra.

It was held on Saturday in The Railway Club, Workington, to raise funds for both the Mayor of Workington and the Mayor of Allerdale’s charities.

Coun Paul Scott, who helped organise the event, said: "Both bands delivered a fantastic display of traditional rock music. It was a sold out event and a great success with both bands generating a fantastic atmosphere.

"We would just like to thank everyone who purchased a ticket, without you the night would not have been such a success.

"Other people we wish to thank are, CF Events for providing tickets and wristbands. The Railway Club, Workington, for hosting the night, Allan Hall for providing the sound and Derek Williamson for providing the lighting effects.

"Most of all, thanks to both bands for a fantastic show."

The total raised was £1,278.44 which will be split equally between the Mayor of Workington’s charities, which are Young Carers (West Cumbria Carers) and Young Cumbria, and the Mayor of Allerdale’s charities, Allerdale Disability Association and WE WILL.
