Fancy a bit of a boogie for a good cause? The Great Aycliffe Cancer Support Group is holding a charity disco at Elm Road Club in Shildon on 13th November, featuring the Boogie Box Disco and Micky Richards playing some great music for dancing or singing along to.
Young or old, this is a chance to support an established charity that helps cancer patients throughout Great Aycliffe and beyond.
Allison White, who heads up the charity, said: “It promises to be a great night out. Tickets are just £5 and are available via Great Aycliffe Cancer Support Group’s Facebook page, or you can email me at – Even if you can’t make it, you can support us by buying raffle tickets, which are on sale now. Either email me to purchase tickets or visit the Facebook page.”
A fantastic selection of prizes is on offer, including a free boiler check, a timely prize, given the recent energy price rises.
A monthly coffee morning at Chilton Catholic Club, is also raising much needed funds to help transport cancer patients to and from hospital and provide help in so many ways. The next coffee morning is on 27th October, from 10am to 12 noon. The Catholic Club is at Brooklyn Road, Chilton DL17 0PW.
As well as the chance to have a natter over coffee and cakes, you can snap up some early Christmas presents on the Body Shop stall.
Great Aycliffe Cancer Support Group’s next monthly meeting is on 4th November, from 6pm, at Newton Aycliffe Youth and Community Centre. Lynn Green, the guest speaker, from Durham County Council, will be offering advice on saving energy in the home – with welcome advice for cancer patients who feel the cold.
The charity is also planning to open its Christmas pop up shop in Aycliffe town centre at the end of November. Look out for details on Facebook.
