An evening of entertainment will be held at Arkwright Miners’ Welfare Club tonight (Friday) to raise money for a Chesterfield woman who has been diagnosed with dementia aged just 31.

Rachel Potter was devastated to learn she had Gerstmann-Str ussler-Scheinker syndrome earlier this year.

Her family have been organising events to raise money for her care and a trip to Disneyland with her daughter, Brooke.

Tonight's event will see three live singing acts take to the stage at the Hardwick Drive Club from 7pm until late.

There will also be a charity raffle.
