A FUNDRAISING couple are preparing to host a special night of performances in aid of charity ahead of the festive season.

Tonia Barnett and Ray Pemberton, both of Clacton, will hold Tonia and Crazy Ray’s Charity Cabaret in December for Autism Anglia.

The jam-packed evening of entertainment will feature songs from musicals and also several Christmas classics.

There will also be performances from GT Theatre Productions and Leah-Harding Payne and a raffle with a plethora of prizes.

Guests are invited to take along their own snacks and drinks, but Christmas cupcakes and refreshments will be available to purchase on site.

The event will take place on December 4 between 7pm and 10pm inside the Holland Public Hall, in Holland-on-Sea.

Tickets cost £7 per person which can be purchased by contacting Tonia Barnett on her Facebook page.
