Councillor’s band releases charity Christmas video


A band featuring the new finance portfolio holder for Boston Borough Council Aaron Spencer as its lead singer has released a charity video for Christmas.

The Hydrobats, which also features Steve Wright, Elliott Carney and Mark Astley, have put a video of them covering Slade’s Merry Christmas on Youtube in the hope of raising money for the British Heart Foundation.

Coun Spencer, who has been part of a number of bands over the last few years, chose the charity after losing his grandfather to a chronic heart condition last Christmas. So far the band has raised more than £140.

Show your support by videoing yourself, or your family or friends, just having a good time to the tune and getting into the Christmas spirit any way you like – dancing, wearing your favourite Christmas jumper. All contributions, video or just stills, can be sent to

The video can be viewed on Youtube and the band can be found on Facebook.

The band will also be performing the single live among other Christmas favourites at the White Hart tonight at 9pm. Entry free. To donate to the band visit
