A recent memorial night in Exmouth for local drummer Gary Gray raised £1,482 for the Devon Air Ambulance charity.

Gary – the drummer with local bands Five Shades of Gray, Southern Road and Monopole – died in the summer.

Aged 66, he had played in bands around the Exmouth area since the 1970s.

The memorial night was held at Exmouth’s GWRSA Railway Club.

“We would like to thank everyone who attended this emotional evening,” said Chris Coles, the GWRSA president. “Thanks also to all the local businesses for their donations for the draw.

“Our thanks must also go to the four bands – Five Shades of Gray, Southern Road, Monopole and The Exeter Tornadoes – who gave their time to help raise the fantastic sum of £1,482.”

Future events at the GWRSA include: Arthur Shaw (December 2), Hi-Jack duo (December 9), Grumpy Old Gits (December 16), My Mate Harry (December 22) and Exeter Tornadoes (December 23).
