Over £3,000 has been raised for music therapy during a charity band night in St Albans.

The event took place at Trestle Arts Theatre, and saw three bands and a DJ take part.


The event was organised by The Harry-Krish Mootoosamy Foundation, which was set up in memory of St Albans resident Harry-Krish.

Awareness was also raised for pancreatic cancer, which cost Harry-Krish his life in 2014.

Harry-Krish's band 'The Kid Gloves', his sister's band 'Blissful Thinking', local indie rock covers band 'Half Life' and a DJ all performed at the event.

£3,200 was raised in total, which will be given to two baby and children’s hospices for music therapy sessions.

Anna-Ruby, Harry-Krish’s sister and founder of the charity said: "Every time we host an event, you can feel a warmth and passion for our cause and it’s always wonderful to see people having a great time!

"Harry-Krish is continuing to bring people together and continuing to bring joy – as he always did.

"We have missed getting people together and our face to face fundraising events – this night was fantastic – people had a great time and we raised so much."
