Shearing Stu

Stu Gravestock, regular spinner of vinyl at Centrals Bar is offering up three years worth of flowing locks in order to raise money for his nephew's 3yo son Hayden who was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia over Christmas.

Hayden is being treated at The Royal Marsden in Sutton for the next three and a half years. The money raised will help to meet the costs of maintaining a stable home for Hayden along with comfortable transport and the possibility of a family holiday.

The event, which should be sheer entertainment (see what I did there?...), will form the centrepiece of a night of entertainment at Centrals Bar next Saturday (1st March - that's not this one coming but the following one).

In addition to Stu's head being shaved, you'll be able to enjoy him spinning a few tunes plus some others later on from DJ Dizzle. There will be karaoke as well for those who prefer to entertain than be entertained. They have also organised an auction and raffle with items/prizes including a '4 ball' round of golf, signed football t-shirts and other interesting goodies, some supplied by our own Worcester Park local shops.

As the whole evening is a charitable event to raise money for Hayden, tickets (of which there are only around 30 left at the time of writing) are £10 each which covers entry and entertainment and so all of this goes straight into the fund. All the entertainment is being donated to the cause and Steve and Sarah (who own and run Centrals) are even putting in a large chunk of the bar takings into the fund too.

Tickets are available from Centrals Bar, so pop in a get one and then spend next Saturday night having a bit of fun while helping a family in difficult circumstances.

For more information about how you can help Hayden, see the facebook page here and for more information about the event see this facebook page here.

Update (9th March)

So last Saturday Stu was duly shorn and the event raised around £2,400 which has paid the deposit for a new car to transport Hayden to and from the Marsden in comfort. The night was sold out and according to Stu there was a brilliant atmosphere with many locals in attendance. Thanks all for your support.
