Music night to support cadets

A WORKINGMEN’S club is holding a musical fundraiser to raise cash for a maritime youth group.

The Small Crafts Association Club, in Commercial Street, at Hartlepool’s Marina, has organised the charity night to take place on Tuesday, November 12.

And all money raised at the event will be donated to Hartlepool Sea Cadets youth organisation.

The group relies on charitable donations to pay for items like life jackets, heating bills, new sets of oars, trips, health and safety upgrades and even new boats which could last for up to 25 years.

So in a bid to raise as many pennies as possible for the cadets, the pub has arranged for a band, called Revolver, to play live on the night.

There will also be a raffle, and an auction for boat trips and a tattoo voucher, along with games and general fun activities.

Small Crafts barmaid Debbie Stansil said: “We like to do something for the local charities and obviously the Sea Cadets are local to us. They do a lot for the community and they do a lot for the youth of the town and I believe that they get overlooked a lot.”

She added: “We’re all looking forward to the night, it should be really good.”

Tickets cost £5 which can be bought by popping into the club, or by telephoning (01429) 266922.
