Members of The Ripps, Light Cascades and Escape In Paris show their support for CRASAC (s)

A GIG by The Ripps has helped raise £300 for Coventry Rape and Sexual Abuse Centre (CRASAC).

The city-based band were on stage at The Kasbah on Saturday night along with other local bands Light Cascades and Escape in Paris.

The money they raised will be used by the 2011 Guardian Charity of the Year to provide free support, counselling and advocacy to women, men and children who have been raped or sexually abused at any point in their lifetime.

Sarah Learmonth from CRASAC said: "We not only raised money but awareness of CRASAC. It's all worth it if one person calls the helpline for support, that's what it's all about."

Patrick Lagunas from The Ripps said: "We were very happy to take part in the event supporting such a worthy and local cause. I hope all the bands have helped to raise awareness of CRASAC and it got people talking about rape and sexual abuse."

CRASAC’s Helpline number is 02476 277777. It is open from 10am to 2pm Monday to Friday and 6pm to 8pm Monday and Thursday.
