Halstead: Spiritual night to raise money for charity
6:00pm Wednesday 9th October 2013 in News
A WELL-KNOWN fundraiser is holding a special spiritual evening to raise money and awareness for Cancer Research UK.
Karen Howlett, of Parker Way, Halstead, will be hosting the evening with spiritual medium Ronnie Buckingham on Friday 11 at the Queens Hall, Halstead.
Mrs Howlett, who runs her fundraising events with friends and family, has been fundraising for the charity for the last 40 years in memory of her mother, Irene Hunt, who died at 56 from cancer.
She said: “Over the years we have raised more than £40,000. We always do a walk in March to collect donations but we had to cancel it this year due to bad weather so we have decided to put this in as an extra.
“I am very interested in the spiritual world and you never know what’s going to happen until you get to this type of event. Lots of people are interested in what happens after death.
“This sort of thing gives people hope and comfort and we hope it will be a lovely evening.”
Doors open at 7.15pm for a 7.45pm start. Entrance by advance ticket only, £10, available from Mrs Howlett on 01787 473092.
