The objective was to raise funds for disabled toilets in Calstock Hall and the organisers were well pleased with the sum of over £500 raised. Additionally, nearly £60 was raised for the RNLI through a collection bucket and CD sales.
The hall was packed with an enthusiastic audience which ensured that the evening went very well with no danger of going down the pan.
Will the 2018 Toilet Tour have a third gig we ask ourselves?? Team suggestions have included such worthy local locations as Looe, Flushing and Crapstone.

It was a full house at Bere Ferrers Social Club on Friday 4th November for the ‘Shanty Special’. The Tavy Tars hosted the evening, and their guests were a cracking shanty crew from Mevagissey, the Press Gang. Both crews entertained a very appreciative audience, and then cheques were presented to various organisations from performance fees accumulated by the Tavy Tars. The recipients were: Make a Difference (Tavistock) £300, the Alzheimer’s Society £300, Weir Quay Watersports Hub £300, Kate Guest - £100 towards her educational trip to Borneo in 2017, and the RNLI £500.
The finale was a joint singalong session which raised the roof. An additional £223 was collected during the evening to go towards funding the Bere Alston night landing site for Devon Air Ambulance.
