A TRIBUTE concert held in memory of a young man from North Devon has been hailed as a success.
More than 100 people travelled from as far as Yorkshire and Northamptonshire to attend the concert at The Factory in honour of Ben Foulds on Saturday.
Ben, who became wheelchair-bound after a cycling accident in November 2010, died in his sleep from an undiagnosed heart condition last November.
In total, the tribute concert raised £1,200 for Spinal Research through ticket sales and a raffle on the night.
