Brierfield Bridge Club has hosted a special event to raise money for Cancer Research UK.

There was a superb response from more than 100 people and a record sum of £1,500 was raised.

Maureen Ashton, a club member, wanted to organise this event in memory of a friend who lost her life to breast cancer three years ago.

Typical of the support received, miore than 50 raffle prizes were donated by generous club members and friends.

A club spokesm an said: “A home made produce stall, afternoon tea and the game of bridge all helped to make this a wonderful afternoon for all.

“Maureen was overwhelmed by the amount raised and the generosity of so many people.”

Anyone interested in learning the game of bridge can contact the club on 01282 694175 or look at the website at : www.bridgewebs.com/brierfield.

Lessons for beginners start in September at the club’s base in Clitheroe Road.
