Jonny, who has played guitar since the age of 10, said: "A couple of weeks ago on a Saturday night I was playing my guitar in the kitchen.

"My wife Katie put it on Instagram live without me knowing and people were messaging saying I should do something to raise a bit of money.

"I wanted to raise money for a worthwhile cause and chose NHS Charities Together.


"I'm a massive Oasis fan so there was some of that, there was some Killers, a bit by The Cure and Kasabian.

"It was nice to give people a nice evening they could enjoy.

"It's been mind blowing at how much it's raised."

People can still pledge donations by visiting and searching for Jonny Kendrick.
