Country Music Charity Night 2024

Another Country Music Charity Night success!

Following on from the success of the Country Music Charity Night 2023 held on 4 Nov 2023, Mary Weallans enjoyed another successful evening in aid of the Alzheimer’s Society last night (16 Mar 2024) at the Breamish Hall.

There was yet again another full house – this time enjoying the songs and country music of Paul Jackson:

There was plenty of opportunity for audience members to take to their feet and enjoy a line dance:

Raising money for Alzheimer’s Society

Thanks to Mary’s efforts – selling tickets, running a raffle, gaining sponsorship – over £500 was raised on the night. Particular thanks must go to Dave Mitchinson of Alnwick who sponsored the event for around £200 – Dave wanted to help when he heard what the money was being raised for. The total raised will go some way to help create a world in which dementia no longer devastates lives.
