A SWINGING time was had by regulars who slipped into their nightwear for a fundraising pyjama party at a Bulwell pub known as ‘The Monkey’.

Staff and drinkers at the Framesmiths Arms on Main Street took part in the event in aid of cancer wards at Nottingham City Hospital — and raised £800.

‘PJs’, nightdresses and comfy slippers were the order of the fun-filled day, which also included a dash around the town to collect money from other pubs and businesses.

A highlight of the event was a series of performances from the WILD dance troupe, which is based in Top Valley and includes Framesmiths barmaid Kirsty Lees.

Attractions included a karaoke competition, a raffle, tombola and a silent auction, with the top prize of 50 pints of beer.

Among those who entered into the spirit was regular Colin Porter, who donned a woman’s negligee!

It added to his appearance in bra, knickers and suspenders for a footballers and WAGS’-themed fundraiser at the pub earlier this year.

Landlord Paul Anthony said: “It was a great day. Everyone who took part had a laugh, and we managed to raise a decent amount for our chosen charities.

“I want to thank everyone who joined in, especially the WILD dancers. Their performances were brilliant and they were there all day to entertain everyone.”

A series of charity days are being lined up at The Framesmiths in the New Year, with regulars being asked to choose the causes to benefit.
