Yorkshire Cancer Research is £1,200 better off thanks a fundraising event held at the Sun Inn Beverley.
Lynne Peterson who organised was thrilled with the total. She was also grateful to the support shown by the pub and the people who attended.
A musical night the event featured three acts including The Assembly Line, a group Lynne herself plays in.
Funds on the night were raised through the sale of tickets for a prize draw and donations. The event also received an anonymous donation of £500 which helped boost the final amount.
Commenting on the night Lynne said;
“This is the fourth cancer research fundraising I have organised in the past four years here at the Sun Inn.”
“I choose to do this event and support this charity as sadly I know people who have died from cancer. Also, I know people who have cancer now and know cancer survivors.”
“As a result of this, I think it is important that we try and make a contribution to charities that work specifically with cancer.”
“As always Richard and Lee here at the Sun Inn have been very supportive of the event. Richard and Lee know that we all love them. I also want to thank everyone for coming and supporting the night.”
Yorkshire Cancer Research Express Their Gratitude
Jane Jagger, Chairman of the Bridlington Fund Raising Committee at Yorkshire Cancer Research said;
“I would like to say a very big thank you to Lynne for organising this event and inviting us down.”
“Yorkshire Cancer Research is Yorkshire’s very own cancer research charity. We are not part of any major charity, we are the biggest independent cancer fundraising charity.”
“Everything that is raised in Yorkshire is spent on research in Yorkshire. So, for example, it will at the moment we are really into early-stage diagnosis.”
“Events like this one are critical to helping us raise money for this work. There is only so much we can do as fundraisers.”
“So when people take on events and pass us the donations it is just brilliant. We really can not thank people enough.”
