A SOCIAL club is serving-up a charity fundraising event.

The Cross Hills club, in Main Street, is offering ‘full English’ breakfasts on Saturday, September 28, and Sunday, September 29.

And part of the proceeds from each meal sold will go to Ataxia UK – ataxia is an umbrella term for a group of neurological disorders that affect balance, co-ordination and speech.

Breakfasts – comprising bacon, sausages, eggs, mushrooms, hash browns, beans, tomatoes and fried bread, plus toast with tea or coffee – will be served between 8am and noon each day, to club members and the public.

The cost will be £5.50, with £3 going to the charity.

Club secretary, Anita Robertson, learned of the condition when she was in contact with an old friend who has a form of ataxia.

“It makes her life very difficult,” said Anita.

“She suffers from falls and tremors on a daily basis and has difficulty eating and drinking. Her weight has plummeted over the last year because of this.

“Her courage and determination not to give-up is something which I find amazing and humbling.

“The money raised from this event, as well as a raffle with some fantastic prizes, will all go to Ataxia UK.

“Everyone is welcome to call in for a breakfast or to just leave a donation towards this charity.”

There will also be a Country music evening on the Saturday. Admission to that is free, but donations are invited.
