Jazz lunch at Walcott’s Lighthouse Inn aids Alzheimer’s Society

A charity Jazz and Jam lunch this Sunday, July 24, will raise money for a cause close to singer Annie Slater's heart.

Mrs Slater will be teaming up with veteran band The Old Codgers for the event, at Walcott's Lighthouse Inn, from 12.30pm to 3pm, in aid of the Alzheimer's Society.

Her friend and fellow carer is Daphne Hathaway who has terminal bone marrow cancer and whose husband has Alzheimer's, as did other members of her family.

Mrs Hathaway, 75, from Threehammer Common, near Wroxham, still managed to take part in this year's London Marathon, as she had 15 times in the past, walking the 26-mile course to raise both awareness of Alzheimer's and �5,000 for research into the disease.

Mrs Slater said: 'She is an inspiration in her courageous attitude to adversity and her achievement is mind-blowing.'

A raffle, including Mrs Slater's homemade jams, will be held during the event with one item, an original watercolour of The Pleasureboat Inn, Hickling, going under the hammer to the highest bidder in aid of Worstead Day Care Centre.

The painting would normally sell for about �200. Anyone interested in entering a pre-event bid should phone Mrs Slater on 01603 783204.
