Former professional photographer Alan Hutchinson, organised his second annual quiz night, raising £400 for the Rosemere Cancer Foundation.

A total of 17 teams pitted their wits against one another at The Circle in Bacup. The quiz master was Paul Wise, who devised all the questions. 

Alan also donated £187.65 to the foundation, which he earned taking photographs of cars and their owners at a classic car show in Lytham. 

Alan, from Burnley, has been a volunteer and supporter with the charity since receiving successful treatment for tonsil cancer at Rosemere Cancer Centre two years ago.

He said: “Thank you to everyone who supported the quiz night.

“We had more teams than last year, which was great. Thanks especially to The Circle, which hosted the event for free, and to Paul for all his hard work with the questions.”

Rosemere Cancer Foundation works to bring world class cancer treatments and services to cancer patients from throughout Lancashire and South Cumbria being treated at Rosemere Cancer Centre, the region's specialist cancer treatment and radiotherapy centre at the Royal Preston Hospital, and at another eight local hospital cancer units across the two counties, including those at Burnley General Teaching and the Royal Blackburn Hospitals. 

The charity funds cutting-edge equipment, clinical research, staff training and innovative services and initiatives that the NHS cannot afford in order to make patients' cancer journey more effective, comfortable and stress-free.
