A CASINO night in chipping was a great bet for raising funds for good causes.

The Mayor and Mayoress of The Ribble Valley, Councillor Simon Hore and his wife Grace, organised the fund-raising evening at the Waterwheel, in Chipping, in support of their nominated charities, Crossroads Care and Macmillan Cancer Support in the Ribble Valley.

The Casino Night was supported by members of Clitheroe and Ribblesdale Rotary Clubs and Clitheroe Lions, who ran the “gaming” tables. Around 70 people attended the event, which included an auction run by Howard Blackburn, of Clitheroe Rotary, raising £1,400 for the Mayor’s Charity.

““It was a fantastic evening and we are very grateful to Carol and Ian Grant, of The Waterwheel, for hosting the event,” said Coun Hore. “Also to the members of Rotary and The Lions for their skill in running the tables and to all those who attended.”
