Yoko Ono has given her support to a small Liverpool charity that is planning a fundraising initiative at a Beatles landmark to celebrate John Lennon's birthday on Friday.

The Henshaws Society for Blind People will hold a concert at The Cavern Club on October 9 – World Sight Day and Lennon’s birthday – which will feature a number of local bands and a special auction. Going under the hammer will be a John Lennon-engraved 16GB ipod touch and a personally signed postcard donated by Ono, as well as football shirts, artwork and more.

“The Cavern gig last year was such a huge success but this year it’s bigger and better,” said Henshaws fundraiser Nikki Andrews. “We’re so glad that Yoko Ono has given her support on such a significant day.”

Henshaws aims for a society where anyone affected by sight loss has choice and control over their future and can live, learn and work as part of their community. They deliver practical, caring and imaginative services to visually impaired people and to their friends, family and colleagues. They also work to raise awareness around visual impairments in the wider community. Celebrity supporters of the charity include Roger Moore, Judi Dench and more.

Henshaws Live at the Cavern will take place on Friday from 8pm. Tickets will be available on the door and cost £10. For more info about the charity, click here.
