A Whitehouse Strikes Back night will be aiming to boost the funds of the Whitehaven News and RNLI’s Lifeboat Appeal.

The event, at Moor Row Working Men’s Club on March 24, will include music from Thirteen Stars, and a rock music set by DJ Phil Haslehurst.

A portion of the door money will be donated to the appeal, with a collection for the charity during the evening.

Phil, whose first gig was in 1969 and who once turned down a job at Radio Luxembourg, was the legendary DJ at Whitehaven’s old Whitehouse nightspot.

Due to the popularity of the club, and the love people have for stepping back in time, Phil has previously held Whitehaven Strikes Back events to raise money for Cancer Research and Wasdale Mountain Rescue Team.

He said: “It would be lovely to see those who used to come to the Whitehouse – just to see if they still have their hair!’’

Thirteen Stars have previously supported The Quireboys on their European tour in Switzerland, Germany and Italy last year.

For further in-formation about the charity event go to the Whitehouse Strikes Back page on Facebook.

Tickets for the event, which starts at 8pm, are £4 and are available on the door.
