Chance to help the heroes

TWO brave soldiers have helped to organise a fundraising event taking place tonight.

Paul Wallace, of the 32nd Engineer Regiment, and Brian Holroyd, of the 2nd Battalion The Yorkshire Regiment, are both regulars at Diablo’s bar, in Victoria Road, Hartlepool, when they are home.

Paul, who is based in Germany and has just returned from a seven month tour in Afghanistan and Brian, who is based in Cyprus, decided they wanted to do something to raise money for Help for Heroes.

They enlisted the help of the owners of Diablo’s, Stephen and Nicola Weites, and organised tonight’s event.

The fundraiser, which gets underway at 7.30pm, will include a raffle and live music provided by local band Krisis.

Tickets are priced at £2.50 and are available on the door.

All of the money raised will go towards the charity.
