Alfie’s disco to aid fight against lung cancer

Have your say

MUCH-LOVED relatives will be remembered at a fundraising disco organised by a schoolboy.

Alfie Rawding lost both his grandmother and aunt to lung cancer and was shocked to discover there is only one major charity dedicated to fighting the disease.

The 12-year-old Cowplain Community School pupil last year did a fundraising walk for Cancer Research UK in memory of his grandmother.

Tomorrow night he is throwing a disco at Cowplain Social Club, in London Road, for the Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation.

Alfie, of Durley Avenue, Cowplain, said: ‘I decided I wanted to do another event this year.

‘I’m going to have a disco with a raffle and lots of stalls.

‘I was shocked when I found out there is only one dedicated lung cancer charity.

‘I want to help them as much as I can.’

The social club is in London Road, Cowplain.

The disco starts at 6.30pm and will finish at 10.45pm.

All are welcome to go along. Tickets cost £5 per person.
