Barnsley Pub's Regulars Raise Thousands For Hospice

Thursday December 5 2013




REGULARS of a Barnsley pub raised more £3,500 for the town's hospice after completing the Three Peaks Challenge!

Graham Moore, Zak Cox, Damion Cox, Matt Lister, Paul Lister, Eddie McKenzie and Gary Dutton all live in the town centre and often drink in the Commercial Inn on Summer Lane.

They took part in the challenge to raise money for Barnsley Hospice after Damion's mother became ill and was later supported there.

They raised a total of £3,816!

More than £2,000 was raised through sponsorship and the rest was raised through a race night, raffle and auction at the Commercial.

For two weeks landlord and landlady Dave Fisher and Lisa Sephton left a turnip on the bar into which people hammered coins into.

It was sold at auction for £500 and the £116 which was hammered into it was donated back to the cause.
