Starting at 7pm, there will also be a raffle and food served. It is hoped £2,500 can be raised on the evening to buy a new bed for the hospice. The pub on Mill Dam Lane was made an asset of community value last year, protecting it from closure, and part of its remit is to raise money for local causes.
