A nine hour long free music event aimed at younger people and families raised over £1,700 for Cancer Research UK.

Beats Cancer, a dance music event, was organised by a group of Clitheroe DJs and took place at the band stand in the grounds of Clitheroe Castle.

The outdoor setting was the ideal space for the community to get together and the bonus of good weather on the day brought an audience of around 500 to enjoy listening to local DJs playing house music.

Enthusiastic helpers collected donations in buckets and the event was sponsored by local companies Johnson Matthey, 4 Kids and Rapid IT Parts.
