Rocking out for worthy cause

A LOCAL band are taking to the stage this weekend to raise cash for a children’s charity.

The Vertigo Tarts, a rock band made up of father and son Darren and Ben Lockhart, Norval Faorest and Paul Sneap, have already raised hundreds of pounds for When You Wish Upon a Star, a charity helping to make poorly children’s dreams come true.

The four-piece will perform at The Good Old Days on Station Road, Ilkeston from 8.45pm on Saturday July 23.

Promoter, Dave Bamford said: “The band are a great bunch doing it all for a briliant cause.

“You’ve never heard anything like Two Little Boys or These Boots Are Made for Walking like this before, they’re very good and something different.”
