Bank of Blues’ charity fundraiser in aid of the GLFB saw an epic turnout for an evening of blues at Harry’s Bar in London on 16 November.
Eden Riche, the event organiser and lead singer of the band said: “This is our third gig in support of the GLFB. It’s a fantastic cause, and because the focus is London, it’s that much more special to the band who live and work here. It’s an honour to be associated with the GLFB. We hope to do it again soon.”
This year’s event was staged specifically to raise awareness of GLFB’s work in the local community helping improve the lives of people with a visual impairment.
Playing together for almost 30 years, Bank of Blues comprises musicians who work in the financial sector, including two former chief economists at the Bank of England. And, they’ve been raising money for charitable causes since their first gig at Christmas in 1988.
In 2013, Bank of Blues won the inaugural Finance Rocks, a charity battle of the bands between global finance organisations, held at the iconic 100 Club in Oxford Street.

The GLFB aims to improve lives by helping individuals overcome many of the problems associated with sight loss.
