A night of ‘fun, games and cabaret’ will be held by the Towcester Youth Coffee House in September.
The Towcester Youth Coffee House, a charity that has been providing a safe place to socialise for young people in Towcester and surrounding villages for 20 years, is holding a charity event to fund a refurbishment of its coffee shop.
Due to a lack of volunteers and funding to renew the building, the coffee shop has been closed for the past three years.
Now the charity has found some willing volunteers, the coffee house has decided that it is time to get the necessary building work done and reopen the building.
The coffee house intends to hold fundraising events to raise cash for the project, which also includes plans to build a small extension on the coffee shop.
The coffee house expects to see an increase in the number of customers once the planned growth of Towcester gets underway.
The costs of the project will come to around £100,000, a sum the trustees of the charity have been working hard to raise throughout the summer staffing stalls at car boot sales and festivals.
The charity’s first fundraising event will be a cabaret night featuring singer Nell Keane in concert as well as plenty of games.
It is being held at Towcester Town Hall on September 14 from 7pm.
There will be a licensed bar at the event, but people should bring their own nibbles.
A trustee of the charity said: “The charity has been running for a very long time and has received a lot of support over the years, as well as giving a lot of support to the youngsters. Please help us to continue with the good work this facility provides.”
Tickets cost £10 each and are available by calling Dee Fagan on 07759 826086 or Charlie Fagan on 07955 215476.
