LOCAL musicians crowded into The Little House in Bedfont last weekend to mix good music and good deeds at a special fundraising gig.

The event last Friday was a chance for unsigned acts from all over West London to win over more fans and raise cash for charity.

Lloyd Packer,of local indie rock band The Veenex, organised the evening as part of Oxjam - a nationwide music fundraiser for international charity Oxfam.

In Bedfont the line-up for the evening was The Duvets, Chaoi Buddha, Sunsets On Vegas and The Veenex.

Lloyd said: "I liked the fact that to make some money for charity,all I had to do was get some bands together,and play our instruments, easy."

As well as the money from ticket sales the bands boosted their charity pot up to £170 with a raffle featuring prizes from Brentford FC and Thorpe Park.

Having begun life in 2006, Oxjam has now seen over 1 million people attend a gig, helping raise over £2 million towards vital humanitarian work. Every year, every penny counts.  Please visit Oxfam’s donation page to find out more about how you can help in the fight against poverty.
