Now don’t forget ... there’s a charity night for The Not Forgotten Association at the Talk of the Coast at the Viking Hotel, South Promenade, Blackpool, on Sunday.
Promoter Joe Curran says the The Not Forgotten Association is a unique national tri-service charity which provides entertainment, leisure and recreation for the serving wounded, injured or sick and for ex-service men and women with disabilities. “We do this through a wide and varied programme of activities including outings, concerts, holidays, events and the provision of televisions and TV licenses,” he explains.
“Each year we help and support approximately 10,000 individuals of all ages, whenever and wherever they served.
Our events and activities are open to anyone, whether currently serving or ex-service, whose life has been affected by conflict or by subsequent injury.
Many of our beneficiaries and guests have been wounded or injured since 9/11 and we are very grateful to Help for Heroes, our biggest supporter, for their ongoing help.
Individuals who may be eligible for our support should apply through one of the service benevolent charities or through their regimental/military association.”
The cabaret features comedy and entertainment from Carl Schofield (right), Buddy Lee, Nicky Newsome, Terry Cotta and Clive Cooper.
Doors open at 7pm till late and tickets are £5 from the Viking hotel.
