A CHARITY disco with an Eighties theme has raised more than £1,000 for charity.

The event at Haltwhistle Working Men’s Club was organised by resident and regular fund-raiser Kathryn McDonald.

Kathryn has raised money for several charities over the years in a variety of different ways, but this time she donated the £1,023.63 to Tynedale Hospice at Home.

The hospice played a role in the care of both her mum and sister, who both battled breast cancer.

Kathryn said: “I’ve done a fund-raiser every year since I lost my mum to breast cancer ten years ago.

“My sister was diagnosed with breast cancer too, but she’s made a full recovery.

“My mum used the hospice when she had breast cancer, and recently my sister had radiotherapy and the hospice took her to Newcastle.

“The charity is such a big help and their drivers were lovely.

“The night was really good, it was a busy night all round Haltwhistle, it had been a warm day so lots of people were out.”

The disco also featured a raffle, with various prizes donated from across the community.

Kathryn added: “The first prize was an Eighties-themed hamper. We got donations from Tesco, Sainsburys – we had about 20 prizes in all from local businesses.”
