(L-R) Russell Gilmour & Roger Birtles raise £85 for the TT Helicopter Fund from generous spectators at Quarterbridge

Walking through the crowds, Russell played such classics as 'Indiana Jones', 'Star Wars', 'What a Wonderful World', 'Animal Hospital', 'The Final Countdown' and 'Cantina Band' from Star Wars on this unusual Renaissance instrument. Roger Birtles' (right) enthusiastic hat-shaking helped them to raise a remarkable £85 for the TT Helicopter Fund.
