Cafe to host charity bash

CHICAGO Rock Cafe in Redditch has teamed up with the mayor's charity to host a huge fundraising event on Wednesday, May 7.

Management at the old cinema venue have been in talks with the mayor's office to host an event which will see local talent unite for an evening of entertainment and fundraising for the County Air Ambulance and the Sandycroft Wellbeing Centre.

General manager, Dave Allen, is calling upon all local companies to donate prizes for this special night that will see Take That Now and PolkaDot Shotgun perform live on stage.

He said: "We want to make this a fun-packed night for people while we all help to make money for Redditch mayor David Hunt's charity.

"If you have anything at all you can donate for the night, I'd be so happy to hear from you and will make sure you get a big plug for the night."

The mayor has confirmed his attendance for the event which takes place a week before his term of office ends.

It is open to the public and tickets starting from £2 each will be on sale soon.

The evening includes a free buffet and entertainment from Chicago Rock's resident DJ.

Special drinks deals will also be available throughout the evening.

Jenny Ashman from the County Air Ambulance said: "Through the generosity of people like David Allen, Chicago Rock Café and the general public our charity is kept airborne and able to save lives all across the Midlands."

Any one who thinks they can help in any way should call Dave on 595232.
