A Ramsbottom charity is putting on two events to raise money for defibrillators to be installed around the town.

Rammy Restart a Heart are putting on a fun day and a summer ball which will be taking place this summer.

The fun day is going to be held at Nuttall Park on July 2.

It will kick off at 9.30am with a children’s football tournament where many children’s football clubs will be taking part.

The actual fun day itself will be opening at noon and stalls including a prosecco van, Charles Daubney from The Major pub in Ramsbottom running a beer tent, the Lancashire Gin Family hosting a gin tent, a fun fair and face painting.

There will be a tombola and raffle prizes and Balloons By Design based in Bury will be doing a balloon stall.

The Rammy Valley Gundogs will also be there showcasing an obedience class.

Organiser Sarah Jones said: “There’s so much going on, it’s going to be a really big day. Its free entry but we’ll have donation buckets.

“We have St Johns’ ambulance and northwest ambulance coming together and teaching the public CPR free of charge.

“The defibs are no good without the CPR so qualified staff will be coming down and anyone who wants to learn how to do the emergency first aid we will have our own tent doing that.

“We will have at least 30 or 40 stalls so it’s going to be a good day.”

The summer ball will be held at The Stables Country Park at the Bolholt Hotel on July 16 at 7pm.

Sarah added: “Tickets are £50 each and for that you get a glass of prosecco on arrival, three course meal, raffle prizes and an auction.

“The comedian Dr Kevin Jones has donated his time as he’s a respiratory doctor and he knows the importance of the lifesaving machines, we have live singers by Laura and Dawson who have donated their time, we have a DJ and a disco.

“It’s going to be an amazing night.”

The charity said it has had a lot of raffle prizes donated to them, but they are always appealing for more donations as they have to be split across the two days.

Sarah said: “We have sold over 100 tickets, so we have our last 50 tickets to sell.

"If I have to order more, I can do but I don’t want to overfill the room.

“Companies can buy tables if they want as well as individuals. People can buy tickets by contacting me by email at sarahschildminding1974@talktalk.net or by Facebook through the Rammy Restart a Heart page.”
