A 'school of rock' with outlets in Dunmow and Saffron Walden has donated £800 to support people with disabilities.

Livewire Rock Academy raised the money through sales of raffle tickets at their recent rock concert at Southmill Arts Centre in Bishop's Stortford.

The 'rock raffle' featured the main prizes of a brand new PRS guitar and Marshall amplifier, which was donated to the school by Peach Guitars in Colchester.


Thanks to generous donations, the money raised was presented to Mencap charity Grove Cottage at the rock school in Bishop's Stortford earlier this month.

This money takes the total amount raised for Grove Cottage from various Livewire concerts to nearly £5,000.

Livewire Rock Academy teaches drums, electric guitar and bass to children and adults.
