Ye Olde George Inn archway at night

Venue: Ye Olde George Inn

What a fantastic performer tonight! Paul Walker gave a very entertaining Christmas show to the audience at The Ye Olde George Inn.

Anita Weldon from Listening Ear introduced the charity. Jamie Kerk from Ye Olde George Inn provided a very warm welcome and service. The evening sponsor was anonymous so the Chair of the CLAC team Jan Banks gave the cheque for £500 to Anita Weldon from Listening Ear.
