A hugely successful ABBA tribute night organised by Specsavers Hereford has raised almost £3,000 for Blackmarston School.

Held at The Leftbank on Saturday 11 November, 240 people joined in with all the ABBA favourites which were performed by the UK’s Number 1 ABBA tribute band, RƎVIVAL. An enjoyable evening saw the total fundraising amount from ticket sales reach £2,892, with more money set to come in from additional donations over the next few weeks.

Successful fundraiser

‘Most people have some sort of affinity with ABBA, even if the music isn’t from their era, so it was great to see people of all ages enjoying the show,’ said Specsavers Hereford store director, Nialle Smith.

‘We’d like to say a very big thank you to everyone who came along and made the evening such a success and helped us raise a truly fantastic amount for Blackmarston School.’ 

Based in Hereford, Blackmarston is a state-funded, coeducational special school for children between the age of 2 and 11 years. The school caters exclusively for children who have special educational needs (SEN).
