Mod bands of past and present have united to raise money for Teenage Cancer Trust at the first mini Mod festival in the town.

A total of 14 live bands will present a day of rock fun at The Irish Centre on Sunday, headed by hometown heroes The Killermeters, 70s group Chords UK and indie rockers Redstar.

The original Lambretta Scooter ridden by Quadrophenia star Jimmy will also make a star appearance at the event, which is part of a national campaign featuring 50 towns and cities who are hosting events to raise money for Teenage Cancer Trust.

Organiser Jason Taylor, who hopes that he can he can help raise double the £50,000 raised UK wide last year, said: “This is a big deal for Huddersfield as we haven’t ever had anything like this before with bands coming from as far as London and Wales to play.

“We’ll also have an auction, raffle, stalls, food and drink and DJs too to try raise as much money as possible for the Trust.

“I have lost two people I know to cancer and think that it’s important we raise money to fund research and treatment for young people affected who haven’t even had the chance to live out their lives.”

The event is also sponsored by Barclays bank who have vowed to match fund the sum raised for charity.

Tickets £10 from Jason on 07407 437500 or jtlambretta1@sky.com, or Alan on 07947 866697.
