Aggborough Suite events are a success!

We are pleased to announce that our two events held up in the Aggborough Suite over the last week have raised over £1500 for Kidderminster Harriers Football Club plus considerable bar takings. We’d like to thank those that supported these events that have brought in much needed income.

On Saturday 5th March a Kidderminster rock band, Sons of Beaches, played the Aggborough Suite in aid of Kidderminster Harriers Football Club and raised over £900. A crowd of 150 music fans packed the venue as the band kicked off their “In High Definition” tour and released the third single, “Broken Streets”, from their latest EP.

The gig was the brainchild of lead singer Carl Wilkes who approached KHIST about staging an event in aid of the Harriers. KHIST board member Jono Smith said “it was a fantastic evening, the band were on great form and, through ticket sales and bar takings, a lot of money has been raised for the club.”

Jono went onto say “we can’t thank Carl and the band enough. To donate all the ticket sales to the football club is an amazing gesture. It’s great to see people from the town coming to aid the club after the difficult time we’ve had.”

Then on Thursday 10th March KHIST showed a re run of Harriers famous victory at Birmingham City in the 1994 FA Cup 3rd Round watched by around 100 people up in the Aggborough Suite.

A total of £600 was raised plus bar takings as Harriers fans re lived the game with former Manager Graham Allner and players – Martin Weir, Chris Brindley, Neil Cartwright, Richard Forsyth and Paul Davies. (pictured courtesy of Stefan Rapacz)

Following the game our former manager and players answered supporters questions. Graham Allner said “I certainly enjoyed it and thought it went well, bringing back some great memories”

For those that missed the night a few DVD copies of the game are still available from KHIST priced at £5.
