Northern Soul Nights raises money for Cromer RNLI
Over the past year DJ’s Hitman and Half Nelson (also known as Trevor Bailey and Piers Hawkins) have held Northern Soul evenings in and around Cromer.
These are based on the original Northern Soul movement, which was mainly music and dance sessions. The two DJ’s specialise in up tempo, soul music which includes Motown, Northern Soul as well as classic soul. They hold regular evenings in and around Cromer, playing their own brand of vintage vinyl and some of their sessions are dedicated to supporting local charities.
They visited Cromer RNLI to present a cheque for over £200 and to meet some of the station volunteers. Next month, 19th October, they will be holding a marathon music session on Cromer Pier, and then will be back to their normal events on 21 December.
Derek Hinds, Chairman of Cromer RNLI received the cheque and said, ‘Thank you for the wonderful support of different groups and their donations. This means the RNLI are able to maintain the 24 hour cover to all who need it’.
