'Pop and Chips' evening in Burnham raises over £600 for charity

High-energy entertainers Boogey Avenue brought their 60s, 70s and 80s show to the town on Saturday night (May 30th) to help Burnham's Moose International Lodge raise charity funds.

The annual 'Pop and Chips' at The Princess Theatre and Arts Centre was hailed a success.

Organiser Terry Cornelius said: "Boogie Avenue certainly did not disappoint, and I estimate that we will have raised over £600 towards the Gateway Club and other supported charities."

"Thanks go to my wife Yvonne and Jim Dolan, who were busy in the bar for the whole evening. Additionally, thanks to the Moose Ladies’ circle members who laid the tables, served drinks and meals, and also operated the raffle and check-in desk on the door."

"Without assistance from all these, the evening would not have been the great success that it was. Ninety four tickets were sold, and Mr and Mrs Singh from the Battered Fryer supplied the many portions of sausage and chips required, all delicious and piping hot."
