Mayor thanks generous folk

Published2nd October 2018

The Mayor of Ipswich, Jane Riley, today thanked all the musicians who played for free while raising more than £1,000 at a charity folk concert.

The concert saw some of the region’s best folk, roots and acoustic rock singers and bands come together at the Cult Café on the Waterfront last night. Among them were the Silburys, Elly Tree, Holly Johnston, When Rivers Meet, Exit 13 and The Burkitts.

Money raised will go to the Suffolk Law Centre, the Mayor’s official charity. Councillor Riley said today: “This was a fantastic result – combining great music, a fun evening and a lot of money going to my charity. I want to say thank you to the musicians, to Cult Café and to everyone who turned up to support the event.”

The Suffolk Law Centre helps the people of Suffolk to understand their legal rights and to gain equal access to justice.
