Free music event tickets a thank you to hospital staff

A FOOTBALL club is giving hospital staff free tickets to a music event as a thank you for the treatment given to three players.

Ashington CFC’s ‘Live at the Lane’ night will include 50 members of staff from Wansbeck General Hospital.

The club donated the tickets after they treated three of their players for serious injuries last season.

Gareth Bainbridge, Darren Lough and Stephen Young all suffered horrific injuries within the space of a few weeks.

Friday night’s music event will showcase local band Shut Up along with Panic Report.

Club chairman Ian Lavery said: “Following on from the fantastic free community music weekend which we held recently, the club has decided to continue with music events with the first one being ‘Live at the Lane’.

“And because of the fantastic service the club received from Wansbeck General Hospital we have decided to allocate 50 free tickets to the workforce.”

Tickets priced at £5 are available from the football club on (01670) 811991 or you can pay on the night.
