Jimmy Cricket has been asked to be part of a special charity event in May next year.
It will be hosted at Burnley Football Club and all proceeds will go towards the Paula Helm Memorial Fund.
Well-known entertainer Jimmy said: “Paula was a special lady who sadly passed away earlier this year at an unexpectedly young age, as she succumbed to a terminal illness.
“When Paula’s husband, Graham, approached me about appearing at this event, I thought it was such a good cause for a wonderful lady that I found it hard to refuse.
“I have been good friends with Graham for a number of years. In fact, Graham himself conducts one of the top brass bands in the East Lancashire region called the Bacup Scout Band.”
The memorial fund set up in Paula’s name will see the money go towards the valuable work of helping children in the Burnley area, and will also be used to support the care provided by the East Lancashire Hospice.
Those interested in attending the event on Saturday 2 May can place their ticket reservations with Graham by contacting him at 07976 253469.
