Soul and Motown night at the Manor

Over £200 was raised at a charity event held at the Manor Health and Racquets at the weekend.

The club hosted a Soul and Motown night on February 21st, which featured music from a DJ and a raffle to raise money for Pancreatic Cancer.

‘The General’, Paul Oldham, organised the event on behalf of Ian Jackson, who is currently raising money for the charity.

Pancreatic cancer is one of the least funded areas of research, and the survival rate is still only 8%, the same as it was 20 years ago.

Bar manager, Ali Haycock, said: “I’d like to thank all those that supported the Soul & Motown night last night. It was a great turnout & lovely to see so many of you there.”

£230 will be donated from entry fee and raffle ticket sales.

We would like to say a huge thank you to all that attended and gave so generously.

Annette Hayden, Club manager, said: “The evening was a huge success with all the members showing their support for the club and raising money for the charity. A big thank you to the DJ who provided the music and made everyone get up and enjoy themselves by having a dance!”

The next event to be held at the Manor will be a Wedding Fayre Open Day on Sunday 8th March between 12-4pm.
