On Friday the 21st June, myself and a few of my family are holding 'Collofest'.

This is a night in memory of my dad who passed away last year from Cancer. The night is being held at the Penn Bowling club in Wolverhampton and it will feature his old band doing a set and also my old band. We're doing it all to raise money for Compton Hospice (who looked after him in his final weeks) and also for Prostate Cancer UK.

On the night we'll be auctioning off one of his paintings, having a raffle with the star prize being one of his guitars and we'll also have 'Prize or Pap'. This will be a lucky dip of gift bags with a prize every time... It might be a prize, it might be pap! We've got some other things planned too but it would be great to see as many people as possible there.

Tickets are £5 each with all the money being split between the two charities.

We've also set up a fundraising page on Facebook which you can see here. https://www.facebook.com/donate/2365979 ... 158461163/

This is for people who can't make it but would still like to contribute. We originally set it up as a couple of people said they can't make it but would still buy a ticket.

We've set a target of £1000 for the night so hopefully we'll achieve that. We're already well on our way and the support I've had from friends and family has been fantastic!

I know it's a bit of a journey for a lot of you, but I have nothing to lose by mentioning it here and your support, moral or otherwise would be very much appreciated.

A shameless bump because this is taking place this Friday!

It's the first charity night I've organised and so far, it's looking really good. We've raised over £1000 on the tickets alone so we've beaten the target we set ourselves. Hopefully we can at least double it on the night as we're doing a raffle with various prizes including a guitar!

We've also got a silent auction with:-

A Lulu Guiness handbag which isn't available in the shops yet but worth around £300
A signed picture of Minnie the Minx from Laura Howell who is the first female artist EVER for the Beano
A portrait of Noddy Holder with a signed endorsement from the man himself. (this one took some tracking down!)

Of course, we're still taking donations for Compton Care and Prostate Cancer UK so if anyone is feeling generous then the money will all go to these great causes.

And thanks once again to everyone that has donated so far! You're the best!

This was last night and it was brilliant!

So far, the initial total is at £2700 which is better than we ever could have imagined. We'll be counting it properly later today but wow... What a night!
