Regulars at The O Bar in Leicester have collected more than £300 for charity, with plans to boost the donation further during a special charity night on March 31st.

The money has been raised for CLASP the Carers Centre from The O Bar’s on-going loyalty card scheme.

The Clubcard, which entitles holders to special prices on cocktails and a range of other benefits, including food and events, as well as access to discounts and offers from local shops, costs £1, and 50p from each card is donated to the charity.

Now The O Bar in Braunstone Gate is planning to hand over £315 raised through the loyalty card scheme at a charity party on Wednesday March 31st, which is also raising money for the same good cause.

Based on the theme of a village fete, the event will feature traditional village fete games and competitions, such as ‘guess the number of sweets in a jar’, a coconut shy and face painting. Several local businesses have donated prizes for a raffle.

Live music will come from Stephen and the Heathens, Carnival Clowns, Naim Cortazzi and Danny Greet.

The fun kicks off at around 5pm and runs until 2am. Tickets cost £3 on the door, and all proceeds will also go to CLASP the Carers Centre, which was set up in 1994 as a charity to provide a wide range of support services for carers living in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland.

“The Clubcard is a great way to reward The O Bar’s loyal customers and also to help a very deserving local charity at the same time,” said managing director Ben Hings. “We are delighted to have raised more than £300 for CLASP the Carers Charity already through the scheme, and are looking forward to raising more at our charity party night on March 31st.”

Staff at The O Bar will be dressing up for the occasion, and have lined up a packed programme of games and entertainment for the charity party evening.
