Jimmy Cricket helped to raise a four-figure sum of money for charity on a recent visit to the Rolls-Royce Club in the Lancashire town of Barnoldswick.

The 70-year-old entertainer was there to assist the local president of the Rotary Club of Barnoldswick & Earby, Michael Peckover, in raising funds for some of the good causes his organisation supports, including Aquabox, ShelterBox, WaterAid and Mercy Ships.

Jimmy put on the show he often presents around community centres and church halls for good causes within the Greater Manchester and Lancashire regions.

On this occasion his show included his good wife – the female vocalist May Marion – and his good friend Jonathan Swift, who croons away as a Frank Sinatra tribute.

The Ballroom at the Rolls-Royce Leisure was full and, as a result, Michael was able to raise £1,000 from the event.

It meant that not only did everyone enjoy themselves tremendously – as Michael received some great feedback over the weekend after Jimmy’s show – but  those present all contributed to ensure a handsome sum of money was generated that will now help worthy charities associated with the Rotary brand.
