Hope Charity Nights present 80s group Black Lace plus Freddie Mercury tribute at Springfields Event and Conference Centre in Spalding in aid of Children with Cancer UK





Fans of a well-known 80s band will be able to Do the Conga during a fun night which will be raising money for a children’s charity.

Fay Hirel from Crowland organises Hope Charity Nights to fundraise for Children with Cancer UK in memory of her son’s best friend Thomas who sadly died at the age of 11 after being diagnosed with a brain tumour.

Black Lace, well-known for hits such as Agadoo and the Birdie Song, will be performing at the next event, which is taking place at Springfields Event and Conference Centre, Spalding, on Saturday, April 27, from 7pm until 1am.

The Hope Ball and disco nights have donated some £10,000 to the charity and the latest fundraiser is close to Thomas’ birthday.

She said: “This is close to our hearts and this is the charity that my son's friends' parents want to support.

“When my son’s best friend died last year a group of friends and I got together and decided to do something.

“This isn't a ball but we are still hoping to raise money and all of our events are to raise money for Children with Cancer UK.”

The chosen charity researches children’s cancer specifically and can provide special support to families such as arranging accommodation near hospitals.

Along with Black Lace, the night will also have a Freddy Mercury tribute.

The night will also showcase DJ Shaun Neal who will be playing all the hits from the decade that championed crimped hair and neon outfits.

There will be a competition and prizes for the best fancy dress on the night and with 300 tickets sold there are still more available.

It follows the huge success of the sell-out Hope Ball last year at the same venue and the charity committee are in the planning stages for next year’s event.

All profits will go towards the charity and those who attend can expect all the old tunes, lots of dancing and a fun night for a really good cause.
