DISABLED fundraiser Paul Smith is holding a charity evening in February as he prepares for another heroic challenge.

Mr Smith, of Cosham, will self-propel his wheelchair from Plymouth to the Emirates Stadium – the home of his beloved Arsenal – in April next year.

He is holding a night of jazz at the Piranha Bar in Sparks Marina, Hayling Island, on February 9, 2013, and there are only 55 tickets left.

The evening starts at 7pm and features jazz and blues music.

The night will include a raffle and tickets are priced at £20 each, to include a buffet with lobster.

Mr Smith was seriously injured in a motorcycle crash in 1991 and takes part in huge fundraising challenges for Save the Children.

Tickets can be bought from Ray Acland on 07768 796363.
