Manchester band Maruja have found a new saviour, in the form of pop icon Louis Tomlinson.
Maruja were preparing to go back into the studio, aiming to record a flurry of new material, when a cruel theft robbed them of their equipment.
Losing virtually everything they owned, the determined group set about trying to find a forwards path.
With news of their plight hitting social media, a GoFundMe was set up so fans could aid them.
Somehow, word reached Louis Tomlinson who quietly donated £4000, helping the band to reach their overall target of £6000.

A potentially life-changing – or certainly career-changing – donation. Maruja then filmed a short video, thanking their fans (and of course Louis Tomlinson) for helping them in their hour of need.
