A great way to remember a friend

I chatted this morning with Oliver Rowe, one of the organisers of a special day of events to remember his friend whilst raising money for Cancer Research UK. The Alan Paul Squash Memorial Handicap is taking place at LA Fitness in Warley on Saturday 28 April starting at 10.30am, and is open to players of any age or skill level – it costs just £5 to enter the handicap, which is being coordinated by current Women’s Over 70 World Squash Champion, Barbara Sanderson, of Harold Wood. 

Alan – who passed away last year – was not only a longstanding squash player but also a keen jazz fan, and after the winner’s trophy has been awarded there’s an evening of jazz featuring Southend based band Avanti – who, Oliver explained, have a jazz funk oriented style. Tickets for the Jazz Evening, which starts at 7pm also at LA Fitness, are just £10, or £5 for concessions. 

To join the squash tournament, to book tickets for the Jazz Evening or for more information on either event contact Oliver on 07802 677983 or the LA Fitness bar on 01277 228333. 

By the way, in case you’re wondering, it is the same Oliver Rowe who used to present Phoenix FM’s Saturday Pitstop – good to hear from him again!
