A local country and western music club that raised over £ 16,000 for charity is falling back after 25 years of dancing.
Once so popular that people had to be turned away, the Goldminers’ Country Music Club began in March 1996 and celebrated its 25th anniversary in March 2020, just before the pandemic struck.
The group has raised over £ 16,000 for various local charities and organizations including Paulton Hospital, Hearing Dogs, SCARF, RNLI, Farrington Gurney Memorial Hall, Leonard Cheshire, Elm Hayes Surgery and WISH.
Alan Kingman, on behalf of the Goldminers’ Country Music Club, would like to thank Farrington Gurney for using the room, all the artists who have appeared at the club and those who have helped and supported the club over the past 25 years. He also wants to especially thank his wife, Norma, for all her help and hard work.
The rest of the group’s funds were donated to Paulton
Hospital. Terry and Caroline Wynne MBE, on behalf of Paulton
Hospital League of Friends, accepted a check for £ 2,448.19 from Alan and Norma Kingman last Wednesday.
