Fundraising event for cancer charities

Family and friends gathered in the Highlands Inn to celebrate the life of Mark Skelton on what would have been his 60th birthday.

Karen, Mark’s widow along with his daughter Holly and son Matthew organised the celebration but also wanted it to be a fund raiser for several cancer charities.

Well they did really well, a fun evening for all was made even funnier with brave son Matthew having his legs waxed and step son Ryan having his head shaved, with their efforts and collection tins going around the pub an amazing sum of £1,140 was raised for Lymphoma, cancer research and Macmillan nurses.

Karen, Holly and Matt would like to thank all who attended plus the incredibly generous Highlands customers, and Matt Ridley of the Highlands Inn for hosting them.
