Have the Time of Your Life at hospice fundraiser

Barnsley Hospice is encouraging people to dig out their leather jackets and get rocking and rolling with its Grease and Dirty Dancing tribute show next month.

‘Those Winter Nights’, a show performed by singing duo Rock and Love, will take place at the Holiday Inn Dodworth on Saturday 9 February.

The pair will belt out all the classic hits and re-live some of the most iconic moments from the two films.

Barnsley Hospice is hoping the event will attract revellers from across South Yorkshire. Events fundraiser Martyn Hughes said: “Grease and Dirty Dancing are two of the greatest musical films ever, so we’re really excited to bring those well-known hits to Barnsley. Rock and Love have performed all over the UK and are sure to make it a night to remember. Why not have the Time of Your Life and raise money for a wonderful cause at the same time?”

Tickets for Those Winter Nights cost £14, with one free ticket available for every ten bought. Doors will open at 7:30pm, with last orders at midnight. Bar meals will be available and there will be a raffle. For more information or to book your place, visit www.barnsleyhospice.org or call 01226 244244.

Barnsley Hospice has to raise £2.2m a year to care for patients and their families – in addition to £1.6m funding from the NHS Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG). The charity provides specialist care for anyone in the borough with a life-limiting illness, including cancer, motor neurone disease and heart disease.
