A charity night, held in honour of a 68-year-old woman who lost her battle with cancer, has been hailed a tremendous success, after raising £2,722 for the Sir Bobby Robson Foundation.
Family and friends turned out in fancy dress at the Hermitage Inn, Warkworth, last month in memory of Maureen Reynolds, from Amble, who passed away in January.
Maureen, known as Mo, was also a customer of the pub.
She has been described as an amazing person full of love and laughter.
Licensees of The Hermitage, Liz, Steve and Emma Proud, said they were overwhelmed with the local support and amazing turn out for the event which truly showed how much Maureen was loved and respected’.
They described her as a much-loved character who will be missed enormously.
The winner of best fancy dress on the night was Judith Reynolds (as Mrs Brown).
The title of worst fancy dress went to James Fawcett (a geek) while the funniest fancy dress prize went to Brenda Davison and John Henderson (clowns).
Thanks have been given to everybody who supported the event, including local businesses who donated to the raffle.
Last week, a cheque was presented to Pauline Buglass on behalf of the Foundation, which raises money for the early detection and treatment of cancer.
