A trio from Ukie Toones entertained guests at an MND barbecue before presenting the charity with a cheque for £1,550

They are part of a 40-strong group that splits the proceeds from most of its gigs between MND and Yawn 16, a Houghton Regis club for young adults with learning disabilities.

They are also happy to play for any charity which approaches them.

Chair of MND’s Luton & South Bedfordshire branch Ann Murphy said: “We’re so grateful to Ukie Toones for their support. It means a great deal to people living with MND and their families - and it means we can buy equipment like chair lifts for them.

“And the group always livens up any of our gathering with their terrific singalongs.”

Ukie Toones founder Colin Creasey said: “We love what we do and it’s very rewarding and humbling to see what a difference the money makes to the charities we support.”
