Annie’s all set for more jazz and jam at the Lighthouse, Walcott
Jazz and jam will once again help raise cash for charity in the marquee at The Lighthouse Inn, Walcott, this Sunday lunchtime, September 18.
Annie Slater, from Hoveton, will team up with the band Tooes Company who proved so popular with her at a sell-out charity concert at the pub last Christmas.
This Sunday's concert, from 12.30pm-3pm, will feature the popular mix of jazz, music for dancing, a raffle, Annie's homemade jams and marmalades for sale and mini-auction – this time in aid of Cancer Research.
Artist Robert Lee of Hoveton has once again donated one of his paintings, a robin on a holly branch, and its auction will raise cash specifically for Worstead Day Centre.
Pre-auction bids for the picture, or offers of help to organise the Jazz and Jam fundraisers, can be made to Mrs Slater on 01603 783204 or at email@example.com

Sunday's fundraiser will be Annie's final one this summer at the Lighthouse, but as a result of public demand, she is hoping to organise more concerts – possibly every two months – this coming winter and next summer at the pub or at the Butcher's Arms, East Ruston, as well as another Christmas concert.

A summer supper Jazz and Jam session, at the Lighthouse on August 19, featured The Jazzannie 5, a raffle, mini-auction, donations and jam and marmalade sales and raised a total �250 for Worstead Day Centre.
Janet Spink, manager of the day centre which Annie's husband Lewis attends regularly, thanked the concert supporters and said that their contributions would enable the centre to open an extra day each week.
Last year the series of Jazz and Jam concerts organised by Annie, along with sales of her jams and marmalades outside her home and at other outlets, raised a total �2,000 for charity and Annie is hoping the 2011 total will at least equal that.
* The Old Codgers are booked to play at The King's Heads Hotel, Hoveton, on Tuesday, October 11, at 8pm. Admission will be free and Annie will be running a raffle for charity.
