A FUND-RAISING disco held recently at a pub near Ashbourne was declared ‘a fantastic success’ by organisers.
Caz Harris, who together with Julie Mycock, Rachel Haddock and Kay Platt, arranged the event in memory of her late husband PJ Harris, who died last year.
The disco raised £1,400 in total, which will be shared between the British Heart Foundation and Ashbourne Defibrillators.
Mrs Harris said: “I really want to thank everyone for their suport and help.
“Last year we raised more than £9,000 at our Glitz and Glamour night, which we’ll hold again this year.
“But this was something I really wanted to do for PJ - it’s straight from my heart to his.
“I choose these two charities to support as they are both about hearts.”
Ann Smith, who accepted the defibrillator project cheque said: “Thanks for Caz, Kay, Julie and Rachel for even thinking about, let alone doing what they’ve done.
“It’s a very humbling experience that people who genuinely care about Ashbourne are prepared to do more than ‘their bit’ so that our town and community can become a safer place.”
