A working men's club in Leek will be hosting a special war-time themed charity event this weekend.

Leek's Conservative Club (aka The Dog & Rot) will be commemorating the 100th anniversary of the start of World War One with a special charity event on Saturday (August 2).

Club stewards Tanis Pickford and Gwen Alcock are inviting regulars and new visitors to the Mill Street venue to join in on the event which is being supported by Leek veteran John Lovatt, a member of the Staffordshire Regimental Association, who is currently working hard to raise lots of money for a new war memorial set to be erected at the National Memorial Arboretum in Alrewas, Staffordshire.

Saturday's event will feature live music from 'wartime' singer Jill Daniels with 'An Evening of World War One of the Best of British'.
