Jimmy Cricket, who has been spending two days a week during the summer performing in Eastbourne, was at the other end of the country at the weekend.

The Rochdale-based entertainer topped the bill in the third annual LW Rock 4 Macmillan concert at The Shepherds Inn & Auctioneer in Carlisle.

All proceeds raised at the event, held in memory of Lance Wood who died in 2009 from liver cancer, were donated to Macmillan Cancer Support.

Lance’s son, Kelvin J Wood, organises the show and also appeared as he is the lead singer of an indie rock band from Carlisle called The Mass.

Gretna Social Club hosted the first two annual events but its popularity has grown so much that Kelvin was forced to switch to a larger venue.

Other acts appearing alongside Jimmy and Kelvin’s band included singers Big D and Mickey Diamond.

The  evening was hosted by local ITV reporter Ryan Dollard.

Jimmy said: “The show raised hundreds of pounds and everyone had a fabulous time!”
