A trio of madcap ukele players who started raising money for charity in 2012 is now more than 40 strong, with members ranging in age from nine to 79.

Ukie TooNes co-founder Colin Creasey explained: “The idea of having fun, making music and raising money for charity – coupled with the chance to dress in dapper style – was too good to miss.”

So he and his friends Steve Robson and Jane Power got together to form the group that has chosen the Motor Neurone Disease Association as one of their two 2015 chosen charities.

They’ll be providing the half-time entertainment at the charity’s quiz evening at Stopsley Working Men’s Club on Friday, March 27.

Colin said: “We’re open to anyone who plays, wants to learn or simply enjoys a sing-along.”

They rehearse the first and third Friday of the month at Totternhoe Football and Social Club.
