The musical event was held at St John and St Matthew’s Parish Church, in South End Road, Rainham, on Saturday and was organised by church wardens Patricia Sanders and Shirley Phillips.

Money raised from the The Good Ole’ Music Days show will be used to help pay for seating repairs at St Mary and St Peter Church, in The Green, Wennington, and roof and tower repairs at Rainham Parish Church, in Upminster Road South, Rainham.

St John and St Matthew’s admin Andrew Ruff said they raised £300 for each church.

“The Tower is crumbling due to the age and weather wearing away the mixture between the bricks so all funds are being split between the two churches,” said Andrew.

“The feed back was very good, people were wanting another show soon.”
