East Lancashire Hospice was £1,150 better off after a gentlemen’s lunch at Northcote Manor, Langho.

Hospice supporter Brian Quinn was in charge of the proceedings and made certain rules that had to be abided by, and anyone who didn’t followed the rules was fined on the spot.

The group was set up 44 years ago by four local business men and the tradition has continued ever since, with 20 gentlemen attending this year’s event. Hospice fundraising manager Sharon Crymble, pictured with Brian, said: “It was all done in a light-hearted and fun way but the money will seriously go to helping us to provide care to our patients and for that we are very grateful.”
