Volunteer musicians and bucket collectors gathered outside Ladbrokes in St Peter's Street in September, and have now calculated their total for the year.

Half of the money each year goes to Rennie Grove Hospice Care, while the other half goes to a different cause each time - which this year was Earthworks.

Dene Rosewarn, the event organiser, said: "I'd like to thank everyone who helped raise the £2,850, they are the unsung heroes.

"There's always such a great atmosphere there, you get people from all walks of life, all getting together and listening to music."
