AN evening of thrilling entertainment was on offer in support of a cancer charity.

Performers from the Nellie Stagles School of Theatre Dance put on a show-stopping display to the Michael Jackson song Thriller with comedian Tony Wallace providing the laughter and a big band on offer.

Event organiser Liz Paddock took centre stage as she sang under her stage name of Moby Richards.

The fun-packed evening was held in honour of Doncaster Cancer Detection Trust (DCDT) and raised £500 following a three-course meal and raffle.

The charity’s founder Jeanette Fish was also at the event held in The Earl of Doncaster in Bennetthorpe, following her announcement that she is going to retire at the end of March after 40 years.

Mrs Fish was presented with gifts including a bouquet of flowers to mark her milestone.

Liz, who also runs the Rigsby’s bed and breakfast at the top of Osborne Road, Town Moor, said: “It was an absolutely brilliant night, the show was fantastic.

“We had some great performances and it was lovely that we were able to honour Jeanette because she is a fantastic woman.

“She’s done so much for Doncaster and never asks for any thanks.”
