Thank you to DJs Past and Present

Ruby’s Fund would like to say thank you to DJs Past and Present for all their hard work on the recent Northern Soul Gig on 30th April. Here is a few words from them:

DJs Past and Present ( aka Richard Wharfe & Chris Booth ) would like to announce that at the Charity Northern Soul gig held at Congleton Town Hall on Sat 30 April 2022, in memory of our fellow DJ & friend Andy Hulme we were able to raise a whopping £ 1,457.00 for Ruby’s Fund, through ticket sales, raffle sales and additional kind donations. Ruby’s Fund is a local children charity based in Congleton offering SEND family support and wellbeing services. It was our first event in over 2years due to the pandemic and we felt everyone was ready to get back to normal. The support from local Soulies was tremendous and we can’t thankyou all enough for attending, hoping you all had a great night but most of all due to the additional donations we received on the night – you are all amazing! Within the total amount raised £ 203.00 was from the now famous 50/50 raffle, the winner, David Waite also taking home £ 203.00 with the winning ticket picked at random by Pamela Hulme We would like to thank all involved – the DJs especially Andy Farron, Steve Welch, Keith Goodwin, Richard Wharfe and not forgetting our special guest Dj from the West Midlands and well known on the national scene – Mr Dave Hughes – all of whom offered their services for FREE and without them such an event simply couldn’t happen. We would also like to thank the new commercial partner Gary and his team at Congleton Town Hall for a great job on the bar, Chris Booth for Sound & Lighting, GT Security, Congleton Town Council once again offering discounted charges for use of the main hall for a charity and in particular Yvonne who manned the front door mostly single handed all night We will end 2022, with an additional Northern Soul Charity gig at Congleton Town Hall – Sat 26 November 2022 ( Tickets on sale now at Congleton Information Centre, existing tickets from 2020 still valid and transferable ) This event is also to raise much needed funds for Ruby’s Fund but with a difference and I am pleased to confirm again after so many cancellations that probably the best Frankie Valli tribute artist in the UK will be definitely be undertaking a live act performance on the night – this event can’t be missed ! Thanks again for your fabulous support
