TWO years after the death of a highly respected Island musician, money is being raised in his name for a local suicide charity.

Marc Maitland, known widely as Mates, died in February 2019.

His band, Blocko, is selling T-shirts in his memory, to raise funds for SPIIOW, a suicide prevention charity based on the Isle of Wight.

The T-shirts are available for the next two weeks only.

Order them via the Blocko Facebook page.

Marc's sister Daisy said: "It’s such a worthwhile Island charity, and so needed right now in our current situation where people are really struggling with their mental health."
