Performer Peter Binns - aka Memphis Pete/Daddy Cool- took to the stage for the one off event with every penny of the £700 raised going towards helping over 60s live happy and independent lives.

WiSE Activities Coordinator, Debbie, said: “Wow – what a night! Pete absolutely rocked the place – everyone had a great time.

“Every ticket sold will help an older person right here in Wetherby and its surrounding villages to live happy, healthy and independent lives so, a big thank you to everyone who came.”
