Keighley website charity fundraiser
5:00pm Tuesday 26th February 2013 in News
Facebook group You Know You’ve Lived in Keighley When is staging a second annual charity fundraiser.
More than £3,500 was raised last year for local charities with an event at Victoria Hall in Keighley.
Organisers are hoping for similar success when an extravaganza is staged at Octagon Live in Sandbeds on March 23.
Vocalist Emmi Louisa, tribute band Sisters Act and headliner Night Patrol will all perform, and there will also be a disco.
An auction will be led by Keighley’s international pool player, Chris Melling, and lots include signed Leeds and Manchester United footballs, an autographed photo and album by singer Jessie J and a signed autobiography by Denise Welch.
Proceeds will go to charities, including Manorlands hospice, Phoenix School in Keighley – which is raising money for a specially-adapted minibus – and the Amy May Yam Fund, set up to support a teenager who has endured four years of almost non-stop medical treatment.
Tickets are available, priced £6, from Cobblers On’t Green in Church Street, the Sewing Rooms at Keighley Market Hall and through the youknowyouve livedinkeighleywhen.com website.
