THE surfers of Woolacombe are pulling out all the stops to stage a packed fund raising night next Saturday (February 6) for the victims of the Haiti earthquake disaster.

The venue is the Red Barn at Woolacombe and there will be live music from popular local ska band The Liquidators, plus an auction, raffle and plenty of fun and games.

It is being organised by the surfers and friends of the Woolacombe Boardriders Surf Club, who over the last ten years have around �50,000 for causes such as Amnesty International, the British Heart Foundation, Tsunami Appeal and The Island Trust.

"We would like to thank many people for their generosity, including Angus at the Red Barn for providing the perfect venue, The Liquidators, who are guaranteed to rock the roof and are playing for free plus St Austell brewery for many kegs!" said organiser Vanessa Whipp.
