Four 'trad' bandleaders have reason to look satisfied - the 400 cheque they're surveying was raised by their efforts and will go to Derek Tearle and David Backhouse, two members of Mike Cotton's jazz band, who were seriously injured in a car crash three weeks ago and are still in hospital. From left, Kenny Ball, Acker Bilk, Mike Cotton and Terry Lightfoot. They raised the money by giving their services in a performance at a jazz club in Oxford Street, London.
