A Bognor Regis mother and son played in harmony for charity.

Michela Cocolin-Dew and her nine-year-old son James Dew took part in a sponsored cello practice to collect more than £800 for In Harmony, a charity which uses music to improve the lives of children living of socially-deprived and low-income families.

The unique fundraising event took place on December 3, and saw the duo play for some six hours – with regular breaks.

Mrs Cocolin-Dew said: “The cellothon went really well. It was very enjoyable and we have raised more than £800, money that can be used to purchase three cellos or violins for children. But there is still time for people to donate. We have up to March 3 and it would be brilliant if more people from the local area could make a donation.”
