SOUTH Tyneside music lovers have struck a chord with a pair of good causes after hitting a high note at a fundraising gig.

The Wheatsheaf Hotel, in St Nicholas Street, West Boldon, took centre stage as a quartet of borough-based bands raised hundreds of pounds at a charity night in aid of Cancer Research UK and the Genesis Research Trust, which is dedicated to tackling health problems during pregnancy for both women and babies.

Every penny and pound has now been counted from the event, held earlier this month, with the two charities sharing the £630 spoils.
