Members of a working men’s club are coming together to host a charity fundraising event in aid of The Brain Tumour Charity and the St Pauls Defib Fund.

The Big Charity Night will take place at St Pauls Working Men’s Club, 101 Montague Street, Blackburn on Friday, September 2 from 7:30pm.

The evening will feature an exciting performance from Kelly Marie, who is also widely known as the ‘best Cher tribute act in the UK’ and has national show dates that are fully sold out.

Also headlining, is the talented impersonator Miss Sugar who will bring more sass and attitude than you could ever hope for.

The community club is raising funds for a defibrillator at the club, which can cost around £1,000 so the more people that turn up to donate, the better.

The Brain Tumour Charity is the world’s leading brain cancer charity and is dedicated to supporting people affected by a brain tumour.

The money raised from the Big Charity Night will go towards funding research to find a cure as soon as possible.

Promoting the event, Keith Brunt, director of the Blackburn Youth Darts Academy which is based at the WMC, said: “This is a charity night not to be missed! If any local businesses could help us with raffle prizes for the night, it would be greatly appreciated.”

St Paul’s WMC has recently had a full refurbishment during lockdown with new décor, carpets and seating so the members are eager to take full advantage of the fresh venue.

Keith added: “Get your dancing shoes on and head to St Paul WMC for a fantastic evening of fun! It’s a lovely friendly club that welcomes anyone, member or non-member.”

The club regularly hosts sessions for local organisations. From dance fitness classes, snooker, darts, poker, bingo and more, the WMC is an inclusive space that encourages people within the local community to socialise with each other.

Tickets cost £8 and can be purchased in person at the club or after 6pm on weekdays or any time after 12pm on Saturday and Sunday. Otherwise, you can book your space by contacting 01254 53325 or through the club’s Facebook account.
