THERE will be a lot of musical entertainment on offer at a sports club this weekend - all in aid of charity.

The fund-raising extravaganza of Live Life Let's Party will be staged at the grounds of Leek Hockey Club in Macclesfield Road, Leek, on Saturday.

The two-phased event will include a Family Fun Day from 10am and 4pm; followed by a Live Band and Auction Night from7pm until midnight.

Kicking off the evening music, which will be £5 admission, will be Leek's own Fielding Talks who wil be performing a wide range of songs from recent chart music by the likes of The Arctic Monkeys and The Killers to the 60,70's and 80's classics. Once Fielding has well and truly got the party started, the five-piece covers act of Rocky Road Band from Stafford will take to the stage with the likes of I Gotta Feelin by Black Eyed Peas, Locked Out Of Heaven by Bruno Mars, Forget You by Cee Lo Green, Get Lucky by Daft Punk, Smiley Faces by Gnarls Barkley, Sex on Fire by Kings of Leon, Blurred Lines by Robin Thicke, Gimme Some Lovin' by Spencer Davis Group, Stuck in the Middle (with you) by Steelers Wheel, to name but a few. The day-time event for Live Life Let's Party will include a host of fun for all the family including: face painting, bouncy castle, gunge tank, penalty shoot-out, rodeo, henna and glitter tattoo's, teddy tombola, raffle, and much more.

Live Life Let's Party has been organised to raise money for the two Leek charities of Jo's Dreams and Love4Leah.

Denise Horobin set up Jo's Dreams after her sister, Joanne, lost her fight with kidney failure in August 2011 at the age of 48. Jo's Dreams, which has raised £40,000 so far, provides dreams for people suffering from kidney failure ranging from televisions to holidays.

Love4Leah was set up by Leah Powell and her family before the teenager lost her battle with cancer in July last year. Her mum Jane is continuing the fund-raising efforts in her daughters memory and is hoping to raise enough money to set up a retreat in the Staffordshire Moorlands for young cancer patients and their families. Love4Leah has so far raised more than £30,000 which has been given to organisations which looked after Leah.

Tickets for the evening Live Life Let's Party event are available from Over The Rainbow in Sheepmarket, Leek.
