Ear plugs are to be given out to clubbers


Ear plugs will be given out at a series of clubs nights designed to raise money for the British Tinnitus Association (BTA).

Stevenage DJ James Dettner will host the first event on August 11 where revellers will be offered free earplugs and information from the BTA.

The evening will feature sets from DJs Checkmate, Tom Stuart Gallagher, DataBASS and Hinchy & Wyrmyn.

James, who is one half of double-act DJ Checkmate, chose to support the BTA as family and friends have the condition.

He said: "This certainly promises to be a fun evening in aid of a very good cause."

Half of ticket sales will be donated to the BTA. If the event raises £300 it will allow the BTA to run its freephone helpline for three days, giving support and advice to callers.

Tickets cost £2 in advance for the gig at the Times Club, in Stevenage, and are available from James by calling 07951 453616. Tickets on the door will cost £5. The event runs from 6pm to  midnight and will include a barbecue.
