It’s a duet with a difference.

A former Black Lace star turned undertaker is teaming up again with a singing doctor for a charity gig.

Guitarist Ian Howarth, who had two stints with the Agadoo chart-topping band, is joining forces once more with retired GP Dr Bob Dourado for a show at Waterton Park Golf Club later this month.

The managing director of Howarth Funeral Services, pictured right above, and the ex doctor, who has also sung for many years and record charity albums, are both members of Wakefield Chantry Rotary Club. The club is presenting an evening’s entertainment at the Park Restaurant on Friday, November 20 at 7pm.

The duo will do a mixture of old and new numbers. There will also be a pop quiz and lots more all in aid of charity.

Rotary club president Bob Guard said: “Our club do a huge amount of work for local charities and Bob and Ian will be raising money on the night to help towards keeping that good work going.”

Tickets, which cost £10 and include supper, are available from the golf club office and Walton Post Office.
