Fonda Cox lights up Westward Ho! for charity

Get ready to be dazzled as international drag queen and cabaret legend Fonda Cox heads to North Devon.

Ms Cox will be heading to The Pier House in Westward Ho! on Friday, July 5 to raise funds for North Devon Against Domestic Abuse (NDADA).

Organiser Anne Tattersall said: “With a career that has spanned three decades, Fonda Cox is a larger-than-life performer who has left a trail of glitter across the stages of Europe. With razor sharp wit and a magnetic presence, be prepared to get to know this Diva intimately. With sparkle and sass, she gives you an insight to the highs and lows of her fabulous career, her love life, and her battles with hair removal creams.

“Not just a show, this icon will create a party with her mix of comedy and song, belting out classics that will have you singing along and dancing in the aisles.

Rob Braddick, owner of the Pier House, who agreed to host the event added: “NDADA is such a worthwhile local charity and I hope the event will help raise awareness about domestic abuse. People don’t need to suffer behind closed doors because NDADA are there to support women, men and children and their work has already made a huge difference to so many people in our community.”

Anne promised a night of fun and laughter for anyone attending, saying: “This will be a night to remember.’ Anne also wants to thank Rob Braddick for his generosity in lending his premises for this event and for his continued support and deep community spirit in charity events such as these.

“As well as a great night, there will be a short auction and raffle on the evening, and I’m grateful to Sian and Tony at the Sea Gate Hotel in Appledore, who have already donated a fabulous overnight stay with breakfast for two.”

If any other businesses or individuals would like to support the event by donating an auction or raffle prize, contact Anne on 07971696192.
