Liam Gough Tribute event returns for 11th year

Organisers of a popular annual fundraising event, now in its 11th year are preparing to do it all again next this November.

John Gough, with the support of his partner Ann Bates, organises the Liam Gough Tribute Night at Rovers Quoit Club every year in memory of his late brother and in aid of Alice House Hospice. The event is also a tribute to John and Liam’s sister, Angela O’Hara who has an area of the Hospice gardens named after her.

To date, this event has raised in excess of £21,000 for Hospice care; John and Ann were presented with an award from the Hospice at last year’s event for their outstanding contribution.

Tickets are now on sale for the night which takes place at 7pm on 23 November, once again in Rovers Quoit Club on Easington Road, Hartlepool. The evening will include live music from The Valentines along with bingo, raffle and auction.

Greg Hildreth, a fundraiser at Alice House said “John and Ann, along with family and friends are remarkable supporters of Hospice patients and their fundraising is a wonderful tribute to John’s much missed brother and sister. These nights are always great fun and really successful, so I’m sure this year’s will be no different. As ever, we would like to extend our warmest thanks to John and Ann as well as all who support them in their hard work.”

John added “The event has been going strong now for over a decade and we are so happy to have been able to raise such a great amount for Hospice patients in Liam and Angela’s memory; we’re working hard to continue this success at next month’s event and would like to thank everyone for their support over the years. As I always say when planning the night, ‘failure is not an option’.”


Tickets are £4 per head and early booking is advisable as the event usually sells out. Tickets are available from John on 07904 641 875 or from Greg at the Hospice on 01429 855529.
