Military ties spanning three generations have acted as an inspiration for a Help for Heroes gig.

Linda Henderson, whose father and grandfather served in the Worcestershire Regiment, was moved by the accounts of a friend's son, who is on his second tour of Afghanistan:

"It was the stories of the injuries that made me want to do something," she said.

Her brother, Brian Marr, runs the venue where the gig is being held.

Local bands and other solo artists are giving playing for free at the gig, at The Marr's Bar in Worcester on Saturday, 26 March, starting at 1430 GMT, including:

  • Autumn Lily
  • Ray Stroud
  • Kevin Jenkins
  • The Last Picture Show
  • SJS
  • The Peers
  • Pete Mann
  • Les Ames
  • Taluhla Fix
  • Jasper in The Company Of Others

Linda Henderson says every penny raised will go to benefit the wounded Mercian Regiment soldiers.
