An evening of music which featured the premiere of a video has raised £350 in aid of a charity which fights discrimination.
The Music for Sophie event was held at the Sam Newsom Music centre by Boston College’s record company Ademicca for the Sophie Lancaster Foundation last week.
More than 100 people attended including the Mayor of Boston Coun Paul Kenny.
Entertainment included student bands from the Music department of Boston College including Gypsy Heart, Keistas, Lotus Evoke, Woodbridge, Mellow Facility, Aplex and a special appearance by 50 Sniffs (a former Boston College student).
A raffle was also held on the night with prizes from Nevermind the Music Store, Bizarro’s, West End Cinema, The Wheatsheaf Inn, The Style Academy and Marks and Spencers.
The night included the premiere of the video to a charity record called Unique which stars 50 Sniffs, Aplex, MG, Jordan, Sophie and Level 3 learners and was created by music, media and hair and beauty learners.
The Sophie Lancaster Foundation works to increase awareness of the campaign to recognise discriminatory behaviour towards alternative cultures as hate crime.
Ademicca Records has been created and run by the BTEC Higher National Diploma Students Chloe Day, Clementine Cousins, Ross Ianson and Jeffrey Droy.
