KIND-HEARTED regualars at a Hunmanby pub have dug deep to help out a cancer charity.

The Railway Tavern, in Sands Lane, hosted a party night and raffle to raise £380 for Macmillan Cancer Support.

The night was just the first of six fundraising evenings planned for the next year by new landlord Stevan Kilcommons and landlady Shirley Moran.

After handing over the cheque to Macmillan fundraising manager Sally Millington, Mr Kilcommons told the Mercury why the charity was chosen to benefit from the event.

He said: “I lost my parents to cancer and my partner lost her mother two years ago, and the Macmillan nurses do such a fantastic job.

I really don’t know what more you can say about them, they’re fantastic.

“It’s just a charity that’s really close to our hearts, and obviously everybody at the pub feels the same.”

The pub will now focus its attention on hosting similar events for Help The Heroes, Yorkshire Air Ambulance as well as helping the lifeboats, and they are still hoping to host a race night in the near future.
