CASH has been raised at a night of soul music in a Leek pub.

The Benks in Stockwell Street, Leek was the venue for the fund-raising evening which was hosted by Leek Soul Club DJs Stef Callear and Alan Hodgkinson.

Stef said: "A great night was had by all. On the night I collected £200 from donations which were put in the collection bucket we had.

"We have donated the money to Help the Heroes and I would like to thank the landlord 'Spanner' and landlady Sarah, of The Benks, for a great night.

"Thanks also to all the locals who made such generous donations – they are a credit to the pub.

"I hope the lads, from the forces, will be happy with the donation."
