Locals call cancer's bluff
with record breaking fundraiser
SOUTHPORT'S cheese and wine lovers have
teamed up to call cancer's bluff and raise ₤3,500 for life saving cancer
More than 150 guests took part in the Call my Bluff themed wine and cheese
evening at Hillside Golf Club, organised by the Southport based fundraising
committee for North West Cancer Research.
In the style of the popular TV show, each guest was given 6 wines to sample
and tasked to determine if statements given about each were fact or fiction.
The event has been run for several years and this year generous guests helped to
double the amount of money raised previously.
The final total was reached with support from the Liverpool branch of
Barclaycard who match funded the amount raised, which will now be donated to
North West Cancer Research.
North West Cancer Research has committed to funding more than ₤13million worth
of cancer research over the next 5 years, including projects at nearby
University of Liverpool.
Olive Cutts, chair of the Southport Committee, said:- "This year's event
was even more of a success than last years' and I'm very impressed we were able
to beat the amount of money we raised last year.
On behalf of everyone on the Southport fundraising committee I would like to
thank everyone who came along to show their support; it was a great evening
with lots of laughs, lots of great wine and cheese for everyone. I'd also like
to thank the team at Hillside Golf Club who kindly allowed us to host the event
for the second year running. The management and staff were excellent on the
night and did everything they could to help out."
Alastair Richards, CEO of North West Cancer Research, said:- "It was great
to be able to join the Southport Committee at the very successful and very
entertaining Call my Bluff evening. As a charity we rely on the support of our
committees and fundraisers. It is only through the continued support of our
fundraisers that we are able to fund life-saving cancer research in the region."
