MUSIC Island-based performers will raise money and awareness for a Salvation Army homeless service.

Duncan Heenan, secretary of charity, Friends of Fellowship House, said: "Support from local talent is really great and we’re hoping lots of folk will come for the sake of the music, as well as the cause."

On the programme are the Undercliff Singers, Niton Male Voice Choir, the Salvation Army’s own band, as well as new talent such as Pete and the Pickups, Teenage Dirtbag, and Ryde School band Capo4.

The event will be held next Saturday, October 20, from 7pm, at the Salvation Army Centre, Newport, in aid of the Salvation Army’s LifeHouse, Fellowship House, Green Street, Ryde.

Fellowship House is one of the Salvation Army’s LifeHouses, providing accommodation for up to 27 homeless Island men. Since opening in August 2010, the 24-hour manned facility has had 120 admissions.
