STOURBRIDGE rock royalty was on show for a charity gig which raised more than £2,600 for Cancer Research UK.

Bluesman Ian Parker and singer Big Jim Merris joined main band The Spacehoppers during their set at Stourbridge Rugby Club, Bridgnorth Road, on July 12.

Event organiser, Pete Standish, said: “There were between 220 and 240 people there and it was a really excellent night, The Spacehoppers even donated a guitar for the raffle.”
