The Jam Jar Army will be in civvies this week for a fund-raising night.

A fancy dress evening is being held at I Won’t Tell in Alnwick on Thursday from 10pm to 2am in aid of this year’s Army charity, the Stephen Carey Fund, which is raising money for community defibrillators, first-aid training and first-aid kits.

A similar night last year raised more than £1,000 and organisers are hoping to beat that total.

Fund chairman Scott McEwan said: “Last year was a great night with everyone enjoying the opportunity to raise money while having a good time. For the committee, it is the one event where we can actually just kick back and relax.”

Meanwhile, more new recruits – including Red Row Brick Club and Shilbottle Village Store – have joined the campaign by taking a photo of themselves with their jam jar and tweeting it to the Stephen Carey Fund (@1StephenCarey), Northumberland Gazette (@alnwickgazette) and the Jam Jar Army (@jamjararmy) using the hashtag #jamjararmy

Photos will then be retweeted by the three accounts, spreading the news to more than 5,000 followers.

Facebook fans can publish photos to the Stephen Carey Fund page – www.facebook.com/TheStephenCareyFund.
