A CHARITY night tonight will help raise money for a teenager who needs to travel to Florida for treatment for a brain tumour.

Alex Neal, 16, of Hylton Castle, wants to raise £5,000 so her mum, Michelle Burdis, 39, of Coach Road, Washington, can travel with her.

Alex’s aunt, Janette Neal, 46, of Blackfell, has organised the event, which starts at 7pm in Springwell Social Club, in Springwell Village, Washington.

Alex’s cousin Leanne Neal, 26, of Albany, said there would be a raffle, with prizes including an iPad, Android phone, and use of a Mini Cooper for a weekend.

Rock band Rapid Horizons will also play.

Tickets cost £3 for adults, and under-16s go free.
