A Doncaster town centre club has come to the rescue following the sudden and mystery closure of the long-standing Trades and Labour Club.
Doncaster Catholic Club has offered free membership to former Trades members following the Frenchgate Centre venue’s closure last week.
In a post on its Facebook page, a spokesman for the club, based in Waterdale, said: “Following the sad news that The Trades has closed its doors, we have a message for all their members.
“We will give complimentary membership to The Catholic Club for the rest of this year. Please drop in and ask for details.”
The club, which moved into the Frenchgate Centre in 2008, closed on October 28, notifying customers on social media just hours before they shut their doors for the last time.
In a post, on Facebook, the owners of Doncaster Trades Club said: “ Just want to say a massive thank you to everyone who has supported the Doncaster Trades club over the years but unfortunately at half 11 tonight will be the last time ours doors will be open.
