Farnborough Town Hall Soul Re-Union

Saturday 4TH September 2010

Hi Soul Fans .... ,

As advertised in the local news papers , we are holding the above event and raising funds for the local Hospice Phyllis Tuckwell and are quite desperate for RAFFLE PRIZE'S and DONATIONS : Please give some consideration and donate a small or Large item we can raffle of for this very worthy cause ... your name will be mentioned in despatches and all proceeds will be split between these three charities ONLY !

Thank you.

If you have a donation, please contact me on the above numbers I will be happy to collect !!

Event details : In 1991 we held Farnborough Town Hall re-union, for those 30 something's that frequented that Saturday Night dance, that was held in the Hall in the early 1970's within the Old Town Hall building. Whilst the shell of the original building still stands, the internal hall and bars sadly no more exist.

I am now planning to hold another, to be held at, Alexandra Halls, The Masonic Club , Alexandra Road Farnborough a two minute walk from the Old Town Hall.

We are now 50 something's, and there will be a raffle on the night, the proceeds of which, will go to the Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice The PDSA & The British Heart foundation. Already there has been a great interest in this event and we are hoping that over 120 people will attend from throughout the Star news paper area, as people came from all over to attend this popular Saturday night dance. The Music will be from that era, as well as some modern , crossover and Northern soul classics there will also be the ever popular soul classics such as " Saturday night at the Movies " " Jimmy Mack " " Baby Love " " 54 - 46 was my number " and Prince Buster's " Al Capone's Gun don't Argue" which always got the dance floor stomping ! For those interested in attending, and there will be a licenced bar, tickers are available ONLY from C A Tompkins £8 per ticket or buy as a couple two tickets for a £10 ! so if your on your own... treat a mate and take a little trip back in time, and see some .. not so old face's and PLEASE IF YOU CAN .. DONATE A RAFFLE PRIZE or make a CASH Donation Cheques Payable to Phylis Tuckwell hospice c/o myself and I'll make sure these are all passed on.

IF anyone would like to Donate a Raffle price, please contact me at anytime, by telephone or e-mail and I will make sure all local businesses are mentioned in despatches !!
