Skipton pub packed for cancer charity bash
2:49pm Thursday 12th September 2013 in News
Cancer Research UK has seen its charity coffers boosted by the £900 proceeds of a fundraiser hosted by The Royal Shepherd in Skipton.
Organised by Joanne Metcalfe, who manages the Cancer Research shop in Skipton High Street, the packed event featured a disco and karaoke by Shady’s, of Sutton-in-Craven, a charity auction, raffle and a chilli supper provided by Craven Bakery.
Official opener, Skipton mayor John Kerwin-Davey, thanked local businesses and individuals, who had donated a plethora of prizes, Royal Shepherd licensees Ben and Natasha Oldfield and Cancer Research volunteers.
He said: “Cancer is a pernicious disease. Not long ago it was almost always fatal, but now many cancers are curable. Continuing to raise money for such a worthwhile cause can only help make cancer totally curable.”
