Carrickfergus RAOB Club will be hosting a country night this Saturday (September 30) to raise funds for Northern Ireland Hospice.

Country artists Phillip Magee, Diane Rea and Nicola Murray will top the bill with co-stars Robert Stewart Jonstone and Pauline McGaughey.

Organiser Thomas Robinson said: “I am delighted that so many household names of country music are playing at the club for such a terrific cause. I would like invite all Buff club patrons, family and friends to come along, enjoy a fabulous night’s craic and dance the night away in support of our neighbours and friends at Northern Ireland Hospice.“

Northern Ireland Hospice regional fundraiser Catherine O’Hara added: “I would like to thank Thomas Robinson for organising this fabulous night of country song. The response has been brilliant and a full house is expected.

“Northern Ireland Hospice cares for 3,500 babies, children and adults with life-limiting illnesses and their families each year. Whilst Hospice care is free to the patient, it is not free to provide and the charity relies heavily on support and donations from the public. Big nights like this are a life line to our charity and the families who need our care. We appreciate every penny.”

The show starts at 8pm; tickets are £7.50 per person and can be purchased from Thomas or pay at the door.
