VEGAS is coming to Westward Ho! for a special charity night fundraiser next week.
Friends Kathy Smale and Laura Davison are staging a Vegas-style casino night at The Elizabethan in Merley Road as part of their fund-raising efforts in memory of Kathy's dad, Jeff Snell, who died earlier this year at the age of 56.
The casino night will be the start of fund-raising that the girls, both 28, will continue by running the London Marathon next year.
It will include an Elvis tribute act, casino and roulette tables, raffle and auction.
