Help the Heroes fundraiser at Cradley Heath pub
Updated 4:41pm Tuesday 20th May 2014 in Local
A HELP the Heroes fundraising bid is set to strike a chord with regulars at a Cradley Heath pub.
The two-day event at The Swan – known as Jaspers - will kick-off with a karaoke and games night on Sunday (May 25).
Ex-serviceman Lee Pearson, who runs the Star for a Night karaoke team, is providing their services free of charge.
There will also be video horse racing and a Play Your Cards Right game for guests to enter, with the fun starting at 6pm.
A raffle will also be staged with prizes donated by local businesses.
On Bank Holiday Monday (May 26) there will be a pig and roast and two bands playing at the Providence Street pub for most of the day.
Help the Heroes co-ordinator for the West Midlands, ex-serviceman Darren Gethin said it was the first time the pub had been a venue for a fundraiser by the charity and thanked landlord Paul Mole for his support.
He said: “There’ll be lots of good entertainment and we’re hoping for a big turnout to raise lots of money for the charity.”
Help The Heroes merchandise, including hoodies, t-shirts and mugs, will also be on sale.
