A WREXHAM nightclub is going back in time to raise money for three charities.
The Centenary Club, located at The Racecourse Ground, is hosting a 1990s-themed evening on November 9 to celebrate the era when the venue was called the Cotton Club and had regular house music nights every Thursday and Saturday.
All proceeds raised on the night through ticket sales will go to Help for Heroes, Leukaemia Research and Autism Wishes.
Organiser Joanne Hamlington explained the reasons behind wanting to raise funds for all three charities.
“My son, Jake Hanley, is in the Army and we’ve experienced first-hand what it is like for families to have their world turned upside down,” she said.
“I lost my father, Trevor Smith, who lived in Coedpoeth, at the age of 62 to leukaemia five years ago so it will be nice to do something to raise funds for further research into the disease.
“Finally, my friend Debbie’s son, James, suffers from autism and she recently ran the Great North Run for him. It inspired me to do something to raise cash and awareness of the illness.”
Joanne added that she and her friends, like thousands of others across Wrexham, used to love the Cotton Club and never missed out on a Saturday night at the venue in the early 90s, so the chance to stage a reunion was too good to turn down.
She said: “House music used to be huge in the 1990s and this venue was packed out every week with people queueing for hours to get in. We’d love it if all the people of Wrexham who used to come here will come back for one night only, and if they are joined by lots of others then all the better.”
Nineties act “Awesome 3” will be performing live and a whole host of DJs including original DJs from the house music nights Marc Lee and Leighton Hughes.
Tickets are priced at £5.50 and can be bought online at www.seetickets.com or from ticket outlets across Wrexham including Serutti, Ragazzi, The Beach and the Catrin Finch Centre at Glyndwr University.
