A BLACKBURN pub is holding a fundraising event for a charity which helps people with HIV and Aids.

The Star and Garter Hotel on Railway Road, Blackburn, is hosting the charity night on November 30 to mark World Aids Day.

Entertainment will include a disco with DJ Julian and a giant raffle with plenty of prizes.

All proceeds will go to the Village charity in Manchester, which provides support and practical help for people with HIV and Aids.

Star and Garter licensee Ken Pilling said: "We do something for World Aids Day every year and support the Village because it is local to the North West.

"The events are always well supported and this one should be a good night."

The fun starts at 8pm and lasts until late.
