Two well-remembered Corby DJs raised almost £1,000 for charity by playing a reunion set.

Ian Cross and Danny Boyle, both from Corby, were DJs at the Page Three Fun Pub and Martines Night Club in George Street during the 1980s and 1990s.

Their popularity meant that several former staff, doormen and customers urged Ian and Danny to organise a reunion event to relive old times.

So on Saturday, October 27 the pair organised an event at the Corby Trades and Labour Club in Stuart Road and sold 250 tickets to it.

The £800 proceeds have been divided equally between the Lakelands Day Care Hospice in Butland Road and the urology department at Kettering Hospital.

Mr Boyle said: “We were constantly being asked by people for a reunion and so we organised it and decided to raise money for charity at the same time.

“We chose the Lakelands Hospice as a Corby charity and also the urology department at Kettering Hospital because I have needed to use the department and wanted to thank them for their support.”

The hospital’s charity officer Christina Kelly said: “We are really grateful for Ian and Danny’s support and to all the people who supported us by attending the event. The £400 for Kettering Hospital will go towards an ultrasound scanner in the urology department.”
