A FOOTBALL club kit lady will host a 1960s and 70s night in memory of her late partner and club stalwart.

Susan Charlton will hold the event at Elm Road Club, Shildon, tonight in memory of Shildon AFC fan John Hay.

It has run annually since the death of Mr Hay, who was supporting Shildon in a Durham Challenge Cup tie against Seaham Red Star when he collapsed in January 2013.

Partygoers can expect a music filled evening reliving the 60’s and 70’s performed by the Travellin Band, along with a raffle, tombola and auction with prizes including a signed Middlesbrough football shirt, Alnwick Castle family pass, golf days, spa and meal vouchers.

The event, hosted by ex Wimbledon player Carlton Fairweather, raises money for Diabetes UK, Prosthetic Limb Centre, James Cook Hospital and the football club.

Miss Charlton thanked generous club and community supporters.She said: “ I cannot thank everyone enough for their huge generosity. Not only our football community but the wider community have really come together to support the event. I am so overwhelmed with the amount of prizes donated, I am sure we will beat our fundraising total from last year.” Entry £6 on the door.
