Pop star Eliza Doolittle headlined a special charity gig at the Boileroom to remember Guildford’s Hatti Sandall.

The 24-year-old, who sadly passed away at the start of January, had been diagnosed with spindle cell sarcoma last year.

Such was Hatti’s popularity that her friends set up a Smile for Hatti campaign to support her and the hospice providing her care. The campaign has since raised over £10,000.

To mark her memory, Tom Morley, a musician and friend, organised the gig at the Boileroom with a line-up featuring Tusks, Tweed & Hyenas, Bat & Ball, THOS and Eliza Doolittle.

“Tom asked me to do it and I couldn’t say no. It is for such a good cause,” said Eliza, who played Hatti’s favourite song You & Me with THOS.

Among the hundreds that attended the event, actor Nicholas Hoult, best known as Hank in X Men and the eponymous hero in Jack the Giant Slayer, was also in the audience.

“I really couldn’t have hoped for a better night,” said organiser Tom Morley. “There was a fantastic turnout and the overall feeling was such a nice one given the sad circumstances.”

The gig has raised over £2,500, which will be be split between charities Smile for Hatti and Sarcoma
