Helensburgh locals can dance the night away during a '70s and '80s disco that will help raise vital funds for local armed forces veterans.

The Dunbartonshire branch of the Soldiers', Sailors' and Airmen's Families Association (commonly known as the SSAFA) is hosting a '70 and '80s party in the Commodore Hotel on Saturday, September 30 from 7.30pm until late.

This fundraiser aims to raise money for local families and individuals who serve - or have served - in the armed forces.

The event has been well received with tickets selling so quickly the branch has had to print a second batch.

Event organiser, Janet Marshall, said: “SSAFA does so much good work to help veterans and families, much of it behind the scenes and we felt we needed to raise, both the awareness of how it helps, and of course much needed funds.

“What better way to do that, than a party – a central venue kindly donated by the Commodore Hotel, some great music, and good night to be had by all.

“You can even dress up in some '70s or '80s gear if you wish.

“I am sure there will be some sights to behold!

“Tickets are selling well, so much so that we have done another print run - this event is not to be missed.”

The disco will include a buffet and a prize raffle with cash only entries available on the night.

Tickets cost £20 per person and can be purchased from Helensburgh’s Wilkies and Helensburgh stores with the price including entry to the party and access to the buffet.

The SSAFA was founded in 1885 by Major James Gildea and aims to support serving personnel, veterans, and their families.
