Annabel Littlewood is hosting a silent disco in Ashington in aid of St Oswald’s Hospice in memory of her son Thomas, who accessed the charity’s children and young adults services for respite care from 2007 to 2010.

The silent disco will honour two of Thomas’ favourite things to do, dancing and listening to music.

The whole community is invited to come along to join a fun and memorable evening.

Don’t Panic steel band, from the Sage Gateshead, will be entertaining on the night.

Annabel said: “We wanted to recreate the atmosphere of fun, music and silliness that Thomas himself has always enjoyed in life, as a way of remembering him at his best, following his sad loss in January.

“It’s also a way for all those who knew and loved him to gather for a fun night out whilst raising money for St Oswald’s, which is such a great cause.

“Anyone who joins us will get a fun night out, a dance with a twist and it suits all ages so all the family can come and join us.”

The silent disco is set to take place on Friday, April 8, from 7pm to 11.30pm at The Portland, Ashington. Tickets cost £6 from Annabel on 07799 584274 and on the night.

St Oswald’s fundraiser, Danielle Callender, said: “We are extremely grateful and humbled by Annabel’s fundraising efforts. The Silent Disco sounds like such an enjoyable night in memory of Thomas. Without the generosity of supporters like Annabel we simply wouldn’t be able to continue to care for our patients and their families.”
