Two fundraising brothers who've been wearing shorts all winter in memory of their mum, will be at the rescheduled opening of a new burger bar this weekend.

Tom, 10, and Jack Mayoh, nine, were due to cut the ribbon at the grand opening of The Little Crown burger bar in Accrington on Saturday March 9 but the event was cancelled due to the floods that battered East Lancashire that weekend.

Last year, the boys, from Darwen, set themselves a target of £20,000, which they decided to donate to East Lancashire Hospice, who helped care for their mum, Louise, before she died from cancer in July.

Following an appearance the Darwen Heritage Marathon two weeks ago, the brave siblings smashed their £20,000 target, but have since decided to continue with their fundraising.

Landlady of The Crown Pub, Emma Gilmartin, said: "Unfortunately the event in March had to be cancelled due to the football game being called off because of the weather. But it's now been re-scheduled to take place this Saturday when Accrington Stanley play Luton Town.

"The boys will be here from 2pm. We will have bucket collections and lots of fundraising taking place for East Lancashire Hospice.

"These boys have been so courageous since their mum died and East Lancashire Hospice is our charity, so we just wanted to get them down and help them out."

The Little Crown burger bar is situated in the car park of The Crown Pub, Whalley Road, Accrington.
