UKULELE players from across the south will play for 24 hours as part of a marathon fundraising drive.

The 30-strong ukulele band of the Coda Music Trust, based in New Milton, will hold a “ukethon” from 3pm onwards on June 20.

They will be joined by members of other bands from across the region to keep the music going until 3pm the following day.

It will be open to the public between 7pm and 10pm on Friday, and midday and 4pm on Saturday.

The event is being held to raise £2,000 to convert an old piggery at the site into music studios.

The trust provides music therapy for thousands of people every year, and works with people with disabilities and ill health.

You can make a donation to the trust by visiting trust.
