As you know, Sunday is a chaity event and we will be doing a couple of things to raise a few quid for Macmillan Cancer Support. Come along and enjoy the event but if you can assist our support of Macmillan that will be a bonus.

Charity Raffle .. we have a number of prizes to raffle on the day including a couple of soulful 45's, a soulful LP, a voucher for MIDAS Touch Records, bottles of wine and many more. If you would like to donate a prize to the cause please bring it along with you on the day.

Charity CD ... each DJ has selected a few tracks which have been compiled onto a CD for sale on the day. All proceeds to Macmillan Cancer Support. If the tracks selected for this CD are anything like the tunes played on the day we are all in for a right treat.

If you are looking for a nice way to spend a Sunday afternoon, listening to soul music in the company of like minded soulies, dance a little, sing a little, chat and generally have some fun then Ashby Connoisseur's Soul Club is the place to be.

Rain expected Sunday which will not affect the atmosphere in the do, in fact it may make it even better. However, it will affect our ability to put on a Barbecue so we will have a buffet, chips, etc. available inside the hotel. No one has to eat the buffet but it will be there if you would like some. There will be no direct charge for the food but as you are aware this is a Charity event so we will ask for donations to the charity and thank you in advance for your generosity.

For all those travelling by car, there is a car park adjacent to the hotel which is normally pay and display, even on Sunday. You will NOT have to pay, but need to ask the hotel management for a day pass to display in your car. Please do not forget.

Finally, we are looking forward to welcoming all who brave the weather and can promise a brilliant soulful day of music, dancing and general fun. KTF
