STAFF and regulars at a Blackburn pub toasted fundraising success after raising £265 to send to the Christie Hospital in Manchester.

The Stop N Rest, in Brandy House Brow, held a fun day with football, darts, dominoes and pool to raise the cash and two regulars raised another £26 with a parachute jump.

Landlady Debbie Holden said: "My husband's son's girlfriend was only 18 when she was diagnosed with cancer and she has been in and out of Christie's getting chemotherapy, which is where it all began.

"Lots of people donated money when we had the fun day and hopefully it will all do a lot of good."
