A charity event will be held on Thursday (March 5) to raise money to help children with life threatening liver disease.

The Mamma Mia Night is being held at The Broadway Cinema in Letchworth GC in aid of the Children's Liver Disease Foundation (CLDF) and is the idea of Joanne Hardwick whose daughter was born with liver disease.

Mrs Hardwick, who lives on the Lordship estate in Letchworth GC, is hoping to raise over �2,000 at the special night with nearly all the tickets having already been sold.

Her daughter, Olivia, now seven, was born with the liver disease biliary atresia and had a liver transplant in June 2007 and is now a pupil at Lordship Farm School.
