Pint of lager and a lot of cake raises money for charities

A gigantic pint of lager and lots of cake helped the team at Barlborough NHS Treatment Centre raise more than £400 for charities on Friday.

Together with patients and visitors, the team raised funds for Macmillan Cancer Support with a cake sale and a cake raffle.

And, by wearing yellow, they also raised money for Young Minds, a charity that supports around one-and-a-half million young people across the UK, through support, advice and training to equip them with vital life skills.

Hospital director Steve Booker said: “The cakes were wonderful and the centre was looking very bright, with all the yellow that people wore.

“We were all very impressed with our administration manager Diane Hardy, who won the best dressed prize by turning up as a pint of lager. The charities are close to our hearts, as the issues they deal with have affected each and every one of us at some point, and so we were delighted to have been able to raise so much money for them in just one morning.”
