TWO women from a town centre pub have given themselves a year to raise at least £5000 for Cancer Research - and kicked off the fundraising with a coffee morning.

Sam Smith and Vikki Hall held the event at the Board Inn in Church Street on Thursday 28 July and raised £437.04.

They were helped out by friends, relatives and local businesses Purple Mountain bike hire, W. Hammonds, Carole’s Coffee Corner, Jayne’s Kitchen and Sweetie Pies who baked cakes and biscuits to sell.

A pub crawl on Sunday 28 August, 3pm, has been organised and people in fancy dress will be collecting change in buckets.

There are also plans afoot for a sponsored walk during the summer holidays so that the children can get involved.
