Fundraising Events

24 May 2016

As part of our fundraising events this year we have so far raised over £5000. The first event Saturday Live was an enjoyable concert held at the Engine Shed in Wetherby and raised £3000. The second was an evening Hog Roast with live music held at the Fairfoot's residence which was lots of fun for all the family and raised over £2000. 

It all helps to get LAOS back on stage performing great shows. The next event is The Return of the Westenders who sang at our 125th Anniversary Ball. They will perform at the City Varieties on 2nd October 2016. Proceeds are going to LAOS' fundraising efforts. Make sure you book tickets. Further information will follow.
