Tickets on sale for mayor’s fundraiser

TICKETS for the Mayor’s special sporting themed dinner at Scarborough Rugby Club are still available.

Dennis Taylor, the legendary former snooker player, and Martin Gold, a renowned stand-up comedian, have been secured as guest speakers at the event on Saturday March 10.

Taylor, the 1985 world champion, said: “I am really looking forward to coming to Scarborough and meeting up with one of my favourite comedians, Martin Gold, on what I am sure will be a great night.”

As well as the entertainment on offer the ticket price of £35 also includes a four course dinner and everyone is welcome to attend the event.

An auction will be held after the dinner with two fabulous prizes on offer. Brian Davidson of Crown Paints, a keen supporter of civic events has very kindly and generously donated a fantastic prize for the evening’s auction of two hospitality tickets at a Manchester United game next season, including a champagne lunch and free drinks during the interval and afterwards.

Cllr Blackburn said: “It would be great to see as many sporting people of our borough come together for this one-off special event, we hope to raise as much money as possible for the Mayoress’ Community Fund from sale of the tickets which goes to help support local organisations.”

Places are limited so reserve your ticket early by telephoning (01723) 232311 or emailing
