Thornhill Briggs Working Men’s Club presented Macmillan with the fantastic amount of £2,800 on Saturday evening for monies raised at the club.

They held a coffee-come-beer afternoon on October 2, at which they had a raffle with plenty of prizes, plus an adult and children’s tombola, a teddy stall, and a boys and girls lucky dip.

Plus there were cakes, buns, quiche, sweets, pop, tea, coffee or beer from the bar available.

They had stocks outside the club and people paid a small fee to thrown wet sponges at the staff, family and friends.

Plus they had a stall with Macmillan merchandise.

Stewardess Rose Beecher said: “This is our third coffee afternoon; we have done other events over the past two years and have raised a grand total of £6,522.

“The club does other activities over the year including four parties, with the children’s Christmas party being next on the agenda”.

They also do a pensioners party with entertainment, free food and each person goes home with a present, plus a raffle with the proceeds to a named charity.

The committee are very good to their members as they get free food on special occasions such as New Year’s Eve.
