A famous face joined the mission to raise money for a trust set up in memory of boy who died of a brain tumour.

Former Wet, Wet, Wet singer Graeme Clark helped raise money for the Smile of Arran Trust by performing to a crowd of more than 70 people at AFC Sudbury’s King Marsh stadium.

Mr Clark took part in a question and answer session before performing some of his best hits from years gone by. The singer had signed up to do the gig after being inspired by the Smile of Arran Trust when performing at a festival run by the charity last July.

Smile Festival, the charity’s first ever music event, took place in July. Abbie Tosh, who along with boyfriend Josh Price organised the gig, said: “The night went really, really well. It went a lot better than I was expecting.

“I was really nervous before because we have been talking to Graeme about doing this since last summer.

“But everyone seemed to have a really good time and there was someone in the crowd who had come all the way from Vienna just to see Graeme perform.”

More than £1,000 is thought to have been raised on the night, with all proceeds going to the Smile of Arran Trust.

The charity was set up following the death of former Hedingham school pupil Arran Tosh in 2014.

His parents, Alison and Stephen, and sisters, Chloe and Abbie, have been seeking to raise funds for the trust ever since it began.

Abbie, 22, hopes to organise future musical fundraising events following the success of last Friday’s gig and has thanked those who went along to the gig.

She said: “I would love to work with Graeme again and do something similar in the future.

“The main thing is to spread the message about the Smile of Arran which is what we were able to do on Friday.

“I can’t thank everyone enough for coming and Graeme for all of his help.”
