A Doncaster club is hosting a night of live music to raise money for a charity that helps people with brain injuries.

Singer songwriter Steve Chadwick tops the bill at the fundraising night at the Imperial Club in Mexborough.

The music starts at 8pm on Friday, April 25, and he will be supported by several Doncaster-based bands on the night.

There will also be a raffle and collection buckets will be doing the rounds, with all proceeds going to Headway, a charity which provides support to people who have been affected by a brain injury.

Mick Prince, co-owner of the Imperial Club, urged people to come along and enjoy some live music while supporting a worthwhile charity.

The 64-year-old, of Dale View, Conisbrough, said: “Steve is one of the best musicians in this area.

“Many people will know him from his Rory Gallagher tribute act. He really is worth seeing live.

“We are yet to confirm some of the other bands but it will be a cracking bill.

“Come along and enjoy the night while also giving something extra to help an excellent charity.”

This will be the latest in a calendar full of fundraising evenings held at the Greens Way venue.

A recent benefit for the Aurora Cancer Care Centre raised about £280 and organisers are hoping to raise about the same.

Mr Prince added: “We always try and give a little back to the community. We chose different good causes to support and this time it is Headway.

“There will be some more fundraisers throughout the year.”

In addition to the charity nights, the popular brass band and pork pie evenings are set to return on Sunday, May 11, from 8am.

Mr Prince said: “They have always proven popular in the past and we are expecting full Sunday evening sessions throughout the summer.”
