The Mayor said: “This is a wonderful opportunity for people to get together with friends, family or work colleagues while helping to raise money for worthwhile local causes.

“It is set to be a fantastic evening, with delicious food and fabulous entertainment. However, we would encourage people to book their tickets early to avoid disappointment.

“This is just one of a number of events taking place throughout my time in office to help raise funds for my chosen charities. The money collected will make such a huge difference to these incredible organisations and the valuable work they do in South Tyneside.”

Cancer Connections is a South Shields-based charity supporting cancer patients and their families across South Tyneside.

The Customs House charitable trust serves the residents of South Tyneside with a varied programme of live performance, cinema, visual arts as well as engagement projects for children and young people to help nurture creative talent.
