Fundraisers 'Call My
Bluff' for Cancer Research
FOR 1 night only the popular
TV programme 'Call My Bluff' was resurrected at the Hillside Golf Club, to
help raise money for cancer research projects in the North West.
Organised by the Southport based fundraising committee for North West Cancer
Research (NWCR) the event took on the format of the iconic gameshow with a panel
of 3 'bluffers'. Guests were asked to sample a selection of wines and
then determine which of 3 facts delivered by the panel were true of the wines
A total of £1370 was raised during the evening, with 125 would-be wine buffs
turning out to show their support for the charity NWCR.
A raffle added to the this amount and Barclay's Bank, who have supported the
fundraising committee for several years now agreed to match fund part of the
amount raised, taking the final total to just under £2,000.
Hillside Golf Club provided the setting and hospitality for the evening. Guests
were also offered a selection of cheeses to accompany the wines sampled.
There was a tie for the winning spot, with 2 teams achieving the top score and
even a series of tiebreakers couldn't decide a single winner, so they shared the
prize of 6 bottles of wine between them.
Olive Cutts, Chair of the NWCR Southport fundraising committee, said:-
"This really was a fantastic evening of fine wine, entertainment and fundraising
and behalf of the committee I would like to say a big thank you to everyone who
turned up and offered their support for NWCR. Our panel of bluffers my husband
Jim and good friend Gordon Jaeger whose wife Jackie is the secretary of our
committee did an astounding job at fooling everyone and made it such fun for
everyone. Thanks have to go as well, to Hillside Golf Club who allowed us to
host our event and have been unfaltering in their support over the past few
years. We are only a small community here in Southport and we are very grateful
to the many regular residents who turn up to all our events and help us raise as
much money as possible for cancer research."
NWCR funds vital research into the diagnosis and treatment of cancer, helping
increase our understanding of the disease and directly benefitting people living
in the North West.
To date the charity has funded over £28million worth of
research at University of Liverpool, University of Bangor and Lancaster
