Ladies get together to aid charity

A LADIES’ charity night is being held in Newarthill in memory of a local woman.

Janie Gordon passed away this year from cancer at 52 years old and now her niece Michelle Ward is holding a fundraising night for cancer charities.

Michelle has held a similar event for Cancer Research UK in Cambuslang for the last six years with her friend Sarah Sharpe, raising more than £18,000.

Now for the first time she will hold the event in the Newarthill Club on Friday from 7.30pm to late.

As well as prizes for the best fancy dress, there will be a raffle to raise funds for Macmillan Cancer Support which is another charity close to the family’s heart.

Tickets for the event cost £5 and anyone wishing to purchase them can buy them on the door or from Michelle.

Businesses who can donate raffle prizes are being urged to contact Michelle on 07814 804122.
