A FUNDRAISING gig is being held to save a struggling bar.

Ronnie’s Bar on Old Road, Clacton, is in danger of closing.

A musical extravaganza night has been organised to raise funds for the bar, with the musicians agreeing to play for free.

Owner Linda Lockert-Smith has appealed for customers to support the venue.

She said: “Seeing it struggle is heartbreaking.

“Ronnie’s Bar is not like any other bar in Clacton. It is really unique.

“It provides a stage for a lot of young musicians and I think it is very important in that respect.

“It has been a huge headache but I have never given up. I have put everything I have into the bar and I am determined to keep it going.”

The musical extravaganza will take place from 7pm on Sunday.
