Calderdale Royal Hospital’s ISS department held a charity cabaret night of entertainment to raise funds for Ravenscliffe High School and Overgate Hospice.

Over 100 people attended the ticketed event at Sowerby Bridge Working Men’s Club.

Guests enjoyed performances by local artists Hayley Roberts, Amy Leigh, Julie Dee, UB40 tribute act Eric Juma and Shifting the Paradox band, Tony Wayne compered the evening and guests ate hotdogs donated by local food supplier Ye Olde Oak.

The event was organised by Helen Allen and Keith Parker-Kaye, ISS staff at Calderdale Hospital.

Helen said: “It was a great night, lots of people were up dancing and enjoying themselves whilst raising money for much needed causes.”

The department fundraised for Ravenscliffe High School, Calderdale’s only special school, which is presently fundraising for a new sixth-form site at Spring Hall, Halifax.

Helen said: “My niece, Bethany Schofield is a pupil at the school. Ravenscliffe has been a wonderful school - Bethany has had a fantastic experience there and we want to do what we can to give back to a school that has given so much to so many pupils and their families.

“We chose Overgate as it is a cause that has touched so many of us through work and personal experience.”

A raffle was held to raise funds and local businesses donated prizes. The Works gave two free comedy tickets for their entertainment evening, Navigation offered a free meal for two, Syhiba Indian restaurant gave a £20 voucher and Cafe Thai donated a £10 voucher.

Ticket and raffle sales raised over £600 for Ravenscliffe School, Halifax, and Overgate Hospice, Elland.
