Rockin’ for a good cause

Round & About

Put on your dancing shoes this weekend for sounds of the 60s and raising money for a good cause

An angle grinder is not something that comes to mind, when you think of the rich harmonies and catchy pop tunes of the 60s. But this surprising hardware tool from Jewson, is one of the amazing raffle prizes on offer this weekend for the Out Of The Shadows gig, to help raise funds for Woking & Sam Beare Hospice.

The event takes place this Friday, 7th September in the Wells Room, H.G. Wells Centre in Woking, from 7pm. Other top raffle prizes include a signed McLaren team t-shirt; a £200 Tony & Guy voucher; two tickets for Dream Girls in the West End; a tour around Silent Pool Gin distillery; a 60 minute Sports massage, Sainsbury’s hamper and much more, including the angle grinder.

This event has been organised by one of the band’s back-up singers, Heidi Vinson. She says: “Since taking early retirement, I love to volunteer at the hospice and sing. It’s mainly a cappella but I also support Out Of The Shadows, when they need me as a stand-in singer.  Being involved in this event, means I can combine my two passions. My favourite song to sing from that time, is Cliff Richard’s On The Beach. It really is great to have a big band sound behind you and everyone dancing and enjoying themselves in front of you.”

Tickets are £15 and all proceeds raised will go to support the great work at Woking and Sam Beare Hospices.  The doors open at 7pm and the music starts at 8pm.  Bring your dancing shoes along. Email: [email protected] for tickets or call 01483 538149 or for more information.
