Join The Stables this August Bank Holiday and enjoy a barbecue, casino and dance the night away with a live band in aid of good causes.

The evening will include entertainment from one of the UK’s top covers band, FOG, playing party, pop and rock hits from the 60s through to current music.

The money raised from the evening will be split between the Help for Heroes charity and Whitby Town Football Club.

Owner of The Stables, John Morley, said: “The event is a casual, fun family night.

“We wanted to do our own personal thing for the Help for Heroes charity and also support something local, as a nice gesture to the town. The club won’t survive without local support.

He added: “The event is for the whole family to enjoy, it promises to be a good, fun evening.”

Fund-raising co-ordinator at Whitby Town Football Club, Martin Hart, is organising a raffle and tombola for the night.

He said: “It’s going to be absolutely brilliant, a really different night, I’m wearing both hats in great support of Help for Heroes and for the club.”

The event will be held at The Stables at Cross Butts, Whitby, on Bank Holiday Sunday 28 August from 7pm til late.
