Staff of Beckfields, Ingelby Barwick, with cheque for Macmillan
Beckfields Pub in Ingleby Barwick held a Family Fun day on August Bank Holiday Weekend that raised a fantastic £3092 for Macmillan.
Gary Todd, one of the main organisers said, 'Despite the rain all the bands turned out and there was a great response to the tombola with over 2,500 20p tickets sold in approximately 5 hours. Everyone enjoyed the pirate BBQ, and the raffle on Sunday was a terrific success.'
Lindsay Kay, Fundraising Manager for Tees Valley would like to say a massive thank you to Gary Todd and everyone at Beckfields for making the weekend so successful and most of all raising such a fantastic amount to help local people affected by cancer.
Cancer is the toughest fight most of us will ever face. If you or a loved one has been diagnosed, you need a team of people in your corner supporting you every step of the way. That’s who we are.
When the time is right, you can do something to help. We can all be part of the team. We are Macmillan Cancer Support.
