A COMEDY drag show has raised more than a thousand pounds for a good cause.

‘The Roxy Tart’ comedy drag show fundraiser raised £1,710 in aid of Pendleside Hospice, based in Colne Road, Burnley.

The fundraiser, organised by Helen Davies and Dario Hargreaves, was held at Rosegrove Unity Club in Rossendale Road, Burnley, recently.

It was the third event which the pair have arranged within the last year, and has seen them raise £3,109 for the hospice in total.

Staff and customers at the Baltic Fleet pub have supported them with each event and contributed £395 for the last one by holding raffles every Sunday.

Mr Hargreaves said,“We have enjoyed organising the Roxy Tart fundraisers but are going to take a break now.

“The next one will be December next year.

“Thank you to everyone who has attended and donated and the Baltic Fleet for their support”.
