Lovers of soul music can raise funds for a children’s charity in Woodford Green by hitting the dancefloor on Friday evening.

A group of DJs will be playing for free in support of Haven House children’s hospice at the fundraiser in Buckhurst Hill.

All the cash raised at ‘Let’s Dance’ will be donated to the charity which helps children with chronic or terminal conditions. DJ Franco, the event’s organiser, said: “As parents we would hate to be in a position where our children need the services of a hospice.

“I do realise that this vital service provided by Haven House is a great comfort to the gravely ill children and their families, so I approached Haven House with an idea to raise funds and this event was born.”

A similar event earlier this year raised almost £200 and DJ Franco is hoping the festive spirit will make people more generous.

The fundraiser takes place at The Railway Tavern in Queens Road, Buckhurst Hill this Friday from 8pm to 12.30am.

Entry is free.
