Ian and Helen go back to the 80s

80s Night for Wirral HospiceTwo Radio Clatterbridge presenters have travelled back in time to raise money for a local charity.

Ian Grant and Helen Sestan organised an 80s night in aid of Wirral Hospice St John's.

The Coffee Club presenters, who are also Community Champions at Asda, encouraged guests to dress up in full retro gear while enjoying music from the decade.

"It was a brilliant night and we raised lots of money for the hospice." - Ian Grant

People got to take part in a Tacky Raffle, while Ian and Helen took part in a hilarious game of Mr & Mrs.

There was also a special visit from the Mr Tee King of Desserts van - giving away free ice creams to all supporters.

Fundraisers go back to the 80s

The event, assisted by fellow presenter Steve Pavett, raised more than £700 for the Clatterbridge-based charity.

Ian and Helen hope to build on the success of the event and host another 80s evening for the hospice next year.
