Organiser Jon Prayer said: "I am on their roster of volunteers. We look at local places that need money rather than the bigger charities.

"Centre 33 is small, it's local and that's what we were looking for."

The charity is based in Spicer Street, and is entirely run by volunteers.

Around 450 people attended the indie night, and the tickets were completely sold out. The next one is on Saturday, October 19 and will raise money for Earthworks.
