A Rock ‘n’ Roll charity night organised by Clitheroe company Ashcroft Homecare Ltd raised more than £620 for Cancer Research.

The night of ’50s musical nostalgia went down a storm, attracting more than 80 people from across the regions, as far away as Manchester and Yorkshire. There was live music from singer Colin Paul and non-stop tunes from Charlie’s “Revive 45” disco to keep the evening going with a swing, plus a raffle and an excellent pie and peas supper.

It all took place at St Michael and St John’s Social Centre, organised by Ashcroft’s manager Margaret Dewhurst, director Selina Towers and their staff.

“We want to thank everyone who supported the event, donated raffle prizes, came along on the night or helped out behind the scenes,” said Margaret.

“We couldn’t have raised more than £620 for Cancer Research without their help.”

Based at the Fern Court Business Centre in the heart of Clitheroe, Ashcroft Homecare provides care services to people in their own homes across the area. Established for almost eight years, its carers regularly look after people affected by cancer, so it was a cause close to their hearts,
