George Strattan Fundraiser

Family, friends and fellow campaigners will gather on Saturday 12th March at the Park Golf Club, Park Road West, Southport for a night of music and song to celebrate the life of George Strattan, veteran peace activist, folk singer and trade unionist who died in Southport in December 2009 aged 89, and also of his late wife Viola (known as Vi), who worked tirelessly alongside George, particularly in the peace movement.  As well as the music, hot pot with meat and vegetarian options will be provided - and the Park Golf Club's hot pot is excellent.  Thwaites real ale will be on sale too.

The evening is to raise funds for the Strattan Scholarship, which has been set up by George's family and friends to send an aspiring musician with similar ideals to George and Vi to the Workers Music Association annual Summer School at Wortley Hall in South Yorkshire. George attended this school himself many years ago and found it very fulfilling.

This night of varied music is a mere £5; you can buy a ticket on-line here or phone the numbers below to be sure of getting in, although you should be all right paying on the door. Good music, good food and a good cause - all for a fiver!
