REGULARS at a Todmorden pub went on a fancy dress sponsored walk to raise funds for a cancer sufferer.

Landlords Susan and Les Whittaker were joined by several others for the walk from the Woodpecker Inn, on Rochdale Road, to Hebden Bridge in aid of Susan’s cousin, Bev Dransfield, who is in the USA receiving treatment for breast cancer.

“It was fantastic,” Susan said. “I could have walked further.”

The walk was the latest in a series of fundraising events which have so far raised more than £800.

“Bev’s treatment is going well,” Susan said. “She’s now off chemotherapy and her tumour count has gone down.

“Thank you to all.”
