A WARTIME fundraiser is set to boost efforts to equip a community hospital.
Local entertainer Martin Barry will be presenting his show ‘Time to Remember’ which will include many songs, jokes and music from the 1940s.
Performers will all be wearing costumes and uniforms synonymous with the war years with the event promising the sounds of Vera Lynn, Glen Miller, George Formby, the Andrews Sisters and more.
And organisers are asking those who turn up to dress in a mixture of red, white and blue or put together their own ‘40s costumes as the event bids to help Mold Community Hospital’s League of Friends reach the £200,000 target needed for a new X-ray machine.
Mr Barry, who lives in Gwernymynydd, said: “The people involved are all professional entertainers and we are hoping it will be a really good night.
“We recently did the show in Wolverhampton and it went down very well so we hope it can help the X-ray appeal.
“It’s a really good cause and I’m sure everyone will enjoy the evening.”
The hospital X-ray appeal has so far raised more than £150,000, benefiting from fundraising events organised by businesses within the community as well as a charity performance by funnyman Ken Dodd at Clwyd Theatre Cymru.
Mr Barry’s ‘Time to Remember’ hopes to recreate the atmosphere and sounds of the war years and is taking place at Gwernymynydd Village Hall on Saturday, October 12 from 7.30pm.
Tickets are £10 and can be purchased from the Swan Inn or by calling Nancy on 01352 757328 or Barrie on 01352 754074.
Supper will be included in the price and a fully licensed bar will also be available.
