Roy Walker charity night is cancelled

TONIGHT’S fund-raising gig with legendary Catchphrase host Roy Walker has been cancelled because of poor ticket sales.

Organisers have expressed their disappointment after being forced to pull the plug on Tuesday.

Elliot Jack, a close friend of the Belfast comedian and television personality, said: “A lot of work went in to organising this event and it’s a real shame it has had to be cancelled.

“I’m gutted to be honest and I feel really bad for him because it’s like we’ve let him down.”

It is understood just 70 tickets were sold for the evening of entertainment, which was being held in the high school to raise money for the Huntingdon’s Disease Association and Hawick Albion RFC.

People who bought tickets are advised to return them to the place of purchase where they will receive a full refund.
