In honour of Lizzy

A fund-raising evening is being held at the Cook and Barker in memory of a member of staff who died last year.

Lizzy Dodd worked at the Newton on the Moor venue for more than two decades, but lost her cancer battle on June 16, 2013.

Tomorrow, the Cook and Barker will stage the fund-raiser in aid of HospiceCare North Northumberland.

The event will run from 8pm and there will be live music, a barbecue and a raffle with big prizes.

There will also be a chef auction. Admission to the event is by donation.

HospiceCare is the main provider of palliative care in north Northumberland, delivering care and support to adults who have life-limiting illnesses, and their families and carers.

Emma Arthur, events and community fund-raiser for the charity, said she was grateful that the event was being held in aid of the hospice.
