FUNDRAISERS have collected more than £10,000 for charity in just two years.

Huncoat residents helped raise the cash for the East Lancashire Hospice by taking part in a head shave and the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge.

Linda Dobson, 70, shaved off her locks at The Railway Pub and friend Nick Worden took on the Three Peaks with son Aaron.

Together, they raised an incredible £7,016.89.

Mrs Dobson decided to trim her tresses after seeing a number of close friends battle with cancer and lose their hair during chemotherapy and radiation treatments.

She was joined by landlord of The Railway, Phil Taylor, and friends Pauline Dawber, Christine Leeming, Neil Broadhurst and Nick Worden.

In 2018, the pub raised £3,360.50 from a charity canal walk, which means in total, the group has raised more than £10,000 in the last two years.

Mrs Dobson said: “I’m absolutely over the moon with the amount that has been raised for the hospice.

“I’m so grateful to everyone that mucked in and helped to raise such a fantastic amount.

“There was a real community spirit with everyone pulling together on the day.”

Lucinda Bury, fundraising and marketing assistant at East Lancashire Hospice, said: “I would like to say a huge thank you to Linda and to everyone that took part, donated and helped on the day.

“It was a fantastic event with a great turn out and we are flabbergasted at the amount that has been raised. What a wonderful bunch of people.”
