A HARD Day’s Night proved worthwhile for an acoustic Beatles tribute act and Brentwood’s mayor after £1,000 was raised for charity.

The B-Side Beatles performed a special concert at the Brentwood Theatre in Shenfield Road in aid of Madeline Henwood’s chosen charities of the year Diabetes UK and the Citizens’ Advice Bureau.

The quartet, who all grew up in Brentwood, also raised money on the night in aid of seven-year-old Charlie Marsden from Blackmore who is battling a mystery medical condition.
