A bonfire and fireworks display at the Ship Inn at Sewerby raised another great total for two special charities.
Steve Tighe of Blast Fitness, who next week takes part in the World’s Toughest Mudder 24 hour endurance race, saw £1,020 raised for his chosen charities Help for Heroes and Yorkshire Cancer Research at the event, held on Tuesday night.
Added to the £4,000 that last week’s Burpee Mile raised, that is more than £5,000 already raised to split between the two charities, already smashing Steve’s £2,500 fundraising target before he even embarks on the endurance event, held in New Jersey USA, on November 16.
Steve said: “I am very grateful to Charlie and Lou Kilburn from the Ship Inn for raising money for the two causes.
“We did it by shaking buckets at the event, which was free to enter, and also Charlie donated 50p from every item of food sold on the night which contributed a great amount towards it as well.”
Members of Steve’s Blast Fitness group also took part in the Yorkshire 10k held in Scarborough on Sunday.
