Jazz and Jam session

A jazz and jam session where the lead singer of the band helps raise funds for charity by selling her home-made produce is set to take place this weekend.

Annie Slater from Hoveton is hosting another of her 'Jazz and Jam' charity fund-raising events at The Butcher's Arms, East Ruston, in the marquee which has a dance floor, on Sunday, July 3, from 3pm -5pm.

The event is intended to appeal to those who wish to just sit-and-listen and those who also like to dance, and enjoy a cream tea as well.

The band will be 'The Jazzannie Five', whose line-up comprises Roger Cooke (keyboard) and Annie (vocals), Mick Betts (bass/rythmn guitar), Ivan Tooes (saxophone/clarinet) and veteran musician Eric Burrell, aged 94 (trumpet).

There will be a raffle and admission is �6, including tea, with proceeds in aid of Worstead Day Care Centre. For bookings contact Julie on 01692 650237.

There have been two sessions of Annie's charity 'Jazz and Jam' events at 'The Lighthouse Inn', Walcott, so far this summer which have raised �400 for the Worstead Day Care Centre, including proceeds from the raffle, sale of Annie's home-made jams and a mini-auction.

Eric Burrell will be playing as usual with The Old Codgers band on Tuesday, July 12, 8pm -10pm, at their regular monthly slot at The Kings Head Hotel, Hoveton. Admission free. Again there will be a raffle in aid of Worstead Day Centre. Bookings can be made on 01603 782429.
