The RSPCA animal shelter in Altham has organised a charity fundraising night featuring a popular band.
Junction 31 contacted the charity after the planned masquerade ball fundraiser had to be cancelled last autumn due to poor ticket sales.
Money raised from the event was due to go towards the running costs of the shelter, which takes in and re-homes mistreated or neglected animals across East Lancashire.
Laura Cooper, who is a member of the versatile seven-piece band, said they wanted to do something to help.
She said: “I’ve done lots of volunteering for the RSPCA in the past and I thought it was a real shame the ball had to be cancelled.
“So I spoke to the rest of the band and we were all up for helping out as best we could.
“We realise that times are tough, but local charities such as the RSPCA animal centre still have to find the money to continue with its work somehow.
“We are delighted to be playing our part in that, and we just hope that the event raises lots of money.”
Junction 31 performs a wide range of music covering artists from the past five decades.
The fundraiser will be held at the Shireburn Arms Hotel in Hurst Green near Clitheroe on Saturday, March 23 from 7pm.
RSPCA branch manager Ken Harrison said: “It’s really great that people care so much about the work we do in looking after and re-homing unwanted animals from the local area.
“We are really pleased that Laura and the Junction 31 band have gone to all this effort to help us.
“It promises to be a really great night, so I just hope people will come along and support the event and have a good time too.”
