The second of two fundraising evenings for local charities is being staged by the Remember When Music and Dance Club this month.

The club started in January 2016, and is for anyone over the age of 40 who enjoys dancing or listening to their favourite music from the 50s to the 80s.

The second fundraiser is being held on Friday, September 29, in aid of the RNLI Lowestoft Lifeboat. Running from 7.45pm to 11.45pm, admission is £5 with tickets available from the Remember When Club any Friday night or from the Lowestoft Lifeboat Shop on the South Pier.

The previous fundraiser, held in July, raised funds for the Louise Hamilton Centre at the James Paget University Hospital in Gorleston, which provides care and information services for anyone whose lives are affected by life-limiting illness such as cancer or motor neurone disease.

Last December, the group raised £605 for the Lowestoft Lifeboat in its first fundraising event, and members are now hoping to hold these events annually.

The club meets every Friday from 7.45pm to 11.15pm at Carlton Colville Community Centre in Hall Road.

Club founder Tim Boardman said: “Not only do we reminisce the music from those eras, but we also reminisce all aspects of the good old days discussing and sharing experiences of the past, and now have a projector that shows pictures of old Lowestoft and music performances.

“We will hold theme nights, buffets, arrange various social activities, outings and visits, charity fundraising events and functions.”

Admission is £5, which includes a free raffle ticket and a cup of coffee, tea, or hot chocolate.

It is not run for profit, and any profits made are ploughed back into the club to hire bands and organise special events.

Members are invited to take along their own food and drinks and set up a picnic at their table. Tea and coffee is available.
