Town Mayor, Councillor John Edwards was delighted when Dave
and Jacqui Newman of the White
Lion Inn agreed to hold a fund raising event in aid
of his nominated charity, Macmillan Cancer Support on Saturday
evening. Macmillan is the favourite charity of White Lion
regulars too, so all were looking forward to a good evening's
entertainment by local band SILVA, who agreed to perform
their great range of covers for less than their usual fee.
buckets were passed around during the event and many gave
generously to this fantastic charity who do a tremendous
amount of work to help cancer sufferers and their families.
After admiring the contents of the buckets, the Mayor was
quite taken aback when Jacqui and Dave added the money they
and their locals had raised for the charity by way of quizzes,
a weekly bonus ball draw, sales of T-shirts and the Macmillan
collection box, amongst other ways.
Edwards and his wife Sue were thrilled to learn that their
chosen charity is approximately £840 better off and
thanked Dave and Jacqui and all at the White Lion for their
tremendous efforts, for which they are truly grateful.
