SIXTIES rock group The Premiers of Peterborough held a band reunion in Wisbech in aid of an Essex-based charity SADS UK (Sudden Adult Death Syndrome).
The charity evening was held at the home of Ian and Evelyn Duffy in Wisbech in memory of their youngest daughter, Suzanne.
Suzanne died last year aged just 32 from Sudden Adult Death Syndrome, leaving a nine-year-old son.
The event has coincided with the start of national Arrythmia Awareness Week this week - a campaign to draw attention of the public and healthcare professionals to cardiac arrythmias which are the number one killer in the UK.
