Jazz night helps raise funds for Wok­ing­ham In Need

The Wokingham Paper - - NEWS -

AN ab­so­lutely fab­u­lous night of Jazz was had by all at The Whitty The­atre on Satur­day.

World-renowed saxophonist Art The­men ap­peared with some of his mu­si­cian friends to pro­vide a great even­ing of en­ter­tain­ment – it was a busy week­end for the mu­si­cian, he was in Wok­ing­ham fol­low­ing an ap­pear­ance at Ron­nie Scotts the night be­fore.

The event was to raise funds for Wok­ing­ham In Need, founded by Sue Jack­son.

A de­lighted Art said: “Once more I must thank you Sue Jack­son for your en­deav­ours on be­half of Wok­ing­ham In Need, and I’m glad you man­aged to raise a rea­son­able amount for a very worth­while cause.

“The band had much fun play­ing to such a re­cep­tive au­di­ence.”

And Sue was equally pleased. She said that she wanted to thank all those who at­tended the event and gave their sup­port plus the great sup­port also sup­plied on the night by Wok­ing­ham Ro­tary Satel­lite Club, Wok­ing­ham Lions and Prospect Es­tate Agents.

Funds raised were around £2,000 and will be used for on­go­ing help with a po­di­a­trist at the Wok­ing­ham In Need dropin cen­tre and a forth­com­ing project which will be an­nounced in the next few weeks by Wok­ing­ham In Need.
