PEOPLE are being invited to rock around the clock by attending a fancy dress fundraising party for a good cause.

A 1950s rock n roll party is taking place in the Town Hall, Bank Street, Lochgelly on Saturday, May 4 from 7.30 p.m to midnight.

The proceeds from the event will go to Sunny Harbour Cat and Kitten Rescue - a family run charity dedicated to rescuing unwanted and abandoned cats and kittens in and around Fife and finding them new homes.

The party will feature an optional ‘50s jive’ lesson given by Ray and Nicky Doull of Glasgow-based ‘Rock Til U Drop’ jive club. Ray will also do a DJ spot playing 50s rock n roll.

Musical entertainment on the night will be provided by the Accelerators - a ‘roots rock n roll’ band.

Fiona Newton, organiser, said: “There will be a huge dance floor for those who like to dance, but we also want to encourage people who don’t dance to come along and enjoy the amazing sound of The Accelerators.

“1950s dress is appreciated - it is not mandatory - and there will also be a hairdresser there to give the ladies a 1950s style if they like.

“This is also a BYOB event but there will be soft drinks on sale.”

Tickets for the party are now on sale priced £12 and are available from Sunny Harbour Cat and Kitten Rescue on 0300 330 1412 or the website at www.sunnyharbour.org.uk.
