Yorkshire celebrities will get together at Halifax’s Dean Clough for a ‘chinwag’ for a much-loved children’s charity.

Educating Yorkshire’s Mr Burton - the English teacher who wowed the nation in his pursuit to help stammering student Musharaf Asghar - will join celebrities for an on-stage chat with guests including ITV newsreader Nina Hossain, actress Jodie Whittaker (St Trinian’s, Broadchurch) and music composer and songwriter Benson Taylor, who has composed music for films including Avatar and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, at Crossley Gallery on September 26 to show support for Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice.

The Good Ol’ Chinwag evening will include a cocktail and canape reception at Dean Clough Cooking School from 7.15pm. To mingle with ‘celebs’ and support the Huddersfield hospice, tickets can be purchased for £25.

The charity’s head of corporate fundraising, Emma Kovaleski, said: ““We are thrilled to be hosting our first ever Charity Chinwag. We have got a fantastic line upmfor the sofa and in this amazing venue we know it will be an incredible night for everyone.”

Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice supports more than 100 children with life shortening conditions and their families. It costs £3.2m per annum to run the charity and with just four per cent of the total running cost coming from government funding, community support is vital.

To book tickets for the event call the children’s charity on 01484 411040 or purchase from Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice charity shops in Brighouse, Commercial Street, and Halifax’s King Cross.
