A Clifton man has organised a live music event to help fundraise for a replacement stained glass window which was smashed during a break-in at All Saints Church earlier this month.

Gazz Henderson has arranged for performances to take place at The Golden Lion tomorrow, as well as having a bouncy castle, candy floss and a magician for the kids.

Performers involved include Indi Vegas, Anthony Campo, Jen Yo, The Others and G LaRoche.

Gazz told the Comet: “When I heard about what happened I was gutted. I work with a lot of local bands and so I decided to put some music on and go around with a bucket to collect some money to have the window fixed.

“I can’t believe someone could do that to a church. They didn’t just break-in through the back door, they smashed a lovely window which will cost thousands to replace.”

The window was broken by offenders, who gained entry between 5pm on Saturday, Semptember 1 and 8am on Sunday, Semptember 2.

Anyone with information should call Beds police on 101 quoting reference 40/20703/18.
