New Orleans jazz birthday bash to raise the roof for charity

Leamington Editorial 4th May, 2019   0

AN ANNUAL birthday bash is set to raise the roof for charity.

For the past 34 years Mike Porter from Wasperton has celebrated his birthday with a New Orlean’s-style jazz concert.

And this year will be no different when regular band the Tierra Buena perform at St Gregory’s Village Church in Offchurch – where Mike used to be church warden.

The 82-year-old retired bank manager has raised some £20,000 for charity Christian Aid over the years, and this year’s concert is on Friday May 17 – his 83rd birthday.




The event starts at 8pm and tickets cost £7.50 including wine and nibbles. All proceeds go to Christian Aid.

Tickets will be available on the door.
