The Yorkshire Grey pub in Doncaster is hosting a Northern Soul charity evening to raise funds for the Cystic Fibrosis Trust on Friday 26th April. The party will kick off at 5pm and run until closing time.
Raffle tickets will be on sale in the week leading up to the event, with a whole host of exciting prizes on offer, including the chance to win front row seats in the pub to watch a match and a beer tower. Raffle tickets are priced at £1 and all proceeds will go to charity.
The Liverpool vs. Huddersfield game kicks off at 8pm, customers can chance their luck on football themed scratch cards. Each card contains the name of 40 English football teams. For just £1, customers can put their name against the team they think could be the winner. The person who picks the winning team will receive half the cash, the remaining funds will be donated to charity.
Once the footie finishes, the ‘jukebox’ begins; Northern soul is the theme and customers can choose which songs are played for a £1 donation to the charity. There will also be cakes on sale and some great prizes up for grabs, including a booth and meal for two at the local Slug & Lettuce, a VIP booth and drinks at Flares, pool hall vouchers, as well as bottles of wine and Prosecco.
As if that wasn’t enough, Lewis Bertram from the bar and kitchen team is also taking part in sponsored waxing at 7:30 pm to raise more funds for the cause!
The Cystic Fibrosis Trust provides support for those with the life-limiting genetic condition that mainly affects the lungs and digestive system. The Yorkshire Grey chose to support the charity after employing twin sisters, Kenzie and Danielle, who suffer from Cystic Fibrosis. The pub hopes to raise at least £500 for the charity.
Emma Hartshorn, General Manager of the pub, said: “Having employed two sisters who were suffering from Cystic Fibrosis, we became fully aware of the daily struggle they face. As a team we wanted to do what we could to help support them and the charity, and what a better way than to dance, eat, and watch some footy! We deeply appreciate all the donations and support from everyone involved”
Cystic Fibrosis collection tins will be located throughout the pub, but donations can also be made via a JustGiving page https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/cf-northernsoul.
