Charity fun night success for St Catherine’s
A regular at a pub in Preston hosted a charity fun night for the community with all proceeds going to St Catherine’s Hospice.
Ron Gordon, who is a visitor of the Bears Paw pub on Church Street organised the event to raise money for a local cause.
A brilliant total of £800.00 was raised which will allow St Catherine’s Hospice to continue offering its specialised services to the people of Chorley, Longridge, Preston and South Ribble.
Ron’s motivation to host the charity night was due to him recently being diagnosed with lung cancer, which has sadly left him terminally ill.
He said: “I wanted to do one last good deed to help others in need while I am able to do so.
“I hope that the charity night will be an inspiration to others to follow suit and raise money for St Catherine’s Hospice.”
Guests were entertained on the night with a variety of games, karaoke and a raffle.
Amber Taverns kindly donated the telly for the raffle and JMK Digital, generously matched the money made from the raffle and also donated a further £100.00.
Everybody pulled together in the lead up to the event, to ensure the evening was action packed and thoroughly enjoyed by those who attended.
Danny and Paula Alderson, manager and manageress of the Bears Paw said: “We would like to thank all who contributed to the night, particularly all other local pubs such as the Tithebarn and Blackamoor Head, who sold raffle tickets to help bolster funds.”
