  1. Charity Soul @ the Buck Inn

    until

    Another fantastic weekender for Charity Soul at the Buck Inn. Must thank all the dj's who came from far and wide to support in our cause to find a cure for Prostate Cancer. Also a big big rap for Julie and Steve of the Buck ( and staff), who once again made a brilliant donation to us, this time a fabulous £550.0 which brought the total raised via donations, merchandise and raffle to a whopping £1700.00. Looking forward to visiting the lovely town of Whitby next year and of course the best free venue for soul music on the Yorkshire coast
  2. Charity Soul @ the Buck Inn

    until

    Loading up the Camels and Donkeys for our next sojourn to the Buck Inn at Whitby. If the Motown weekender is half as good as the last NS weekender then we're in for a good time As an added bonus for the regular supporters of Charity Soul I'm reliably informed that the (in) Famous One will NOT be attending, due to a variety of reason viz. a.That his UK visitors visa has expired b. He is on the 'hit' list of a mafia Family situated in LS12 1RB c.He is in hospital to have extensions fitted to his heels d.The weekend clashes with Leeds Munchkins and Leprechauns Society of Vertically Challenged DJ's annual get together My money is on the latter.....................................but you can be assured we won't miss him (at least the manager of the Abbey Wharf will not)

  8. Charity Soul @ the Buck Inn

    until

    Back again to the Buck Inn at Whitby for the Motown Weekender. If there is a better place for soul music, meeting friends and having some great 'criac' in Whitby then I've yet to see it. The landlords of the Buck have never seen it so full in the eight years they have been in the hostelry as it was on the recent weekender in July. The general consensus of opinion of the patrons who attended during this time was that it was best FREE event in Whitby, for which we at Charity Soul feel ever so humble, as all we are endeavouring to do is raise funds for Prostate Cancer research and play music we all love So hope see all friends who were here in July for a 'Bucking Good time'

Raffles for highly sought after, exclusive soul memorabilia will be held during the event with all proceeds going towards Cancer research Previous weekenders here at the Buck In have been exceptionally well received and we look forward to this return visit As a rider to the above a fantastic £3,496.0 was raised at the last weekender at the Buck Inn. If we can approach anything near this figure at the Motown weekender we will be delighted

    After some fantastic fundraising soul music events @ Bridlington Spa and the Windsor Hotel, Buck Inn, Whitby and last weekend at Knottingley RUFC its back to the good ol' Manhattan Club for another Charity Soul evening of Modern, Rare and Underplayed and Northern Soul played by guys who donate time and effort to support our great cause. The entry fee of £7:00 for pre-paid tickets is the best value for money you can get around the soul scene, so if your at a loss for something to or somewhere to go this weekend, then this is THE only place to be, where all your money goes to Prostate Cancer research.

    What can you say after 3 days of fantastic music played by some of the best djs on the scene who gave up their time to donate there services in our cause to find a cure for Prostate Cancer. A special mention must go to the Jersey Boys who were absolutely brilliant the whole weekend, to the numerous non-soulies who just dropped by and said what a fabulous time they had, in spite of the heat outside, the crowd in the Buck did not let us down and we could not keep up with the purchases you wanted from our soul memorablia stand, such was the demand that we sold out of Charity Soul Fans, Pin badges and are now down to our bare bone in our range of famous and historic Soul club pictures......................................................................................... SO HOW MUCH DID WE RAISE, YOUR WONDERING.......................................................... A WHOPPING, STONKING, MIND BLOWING............. £3,498.00 which is all down to YOUR kind generosity, such as the guy who just dropped £80.00 into the bucket when he heard what Steve and Julie of the Buck Inn had donated to our fundraising, to the guys who were competing for the signed Edwin Starr vinyl that we auctioned, to the ladies from Middlesboro' out on a day trip who all bought Charity Soul wristbands .............................................on behalf of all the guys and gals who work tirelessly for our cause all I can say is THANK YOU Dave - in very 'umble mode

    Well todays the start of THE BEST FREE SOUL EVENT in Whitby, some well respected djs have VOLUNTEERED to dj for us just because of the cause we are raising money for. This fee event is now a 'must do' for the soul loving public attending Whitby for the Northern Soul weekender. The Buck is the place to be over the next few days for a chat, dance listen to some great 'choons' ................oh and not forgetting the unique and original soul memorabilia that will be on sale via our CEO in charge of Merchandising Mr. G. Dolby. There may be a special presentation to a Charity Soul member (under certain circumstances) for services above and beyond the call of duty.
