The Sportsman Inn’s annual musical festival was a great success raising an incredible amount for the cancer support charity MacMillan.
Last year the rain lashed down and the music fans huddled under umbrellas but this year the weather was perfect for the outdoor event and locals packed the beer garden to enjoy the tunes of several local bands.
Everyone was very generous as they enjoyed the barbecue and took part in the raffle and the pennies kept rolling in until they reached the fantastic total of £2,199.
Kirsty Elwood, who organised the event, said: “We would like to thank all the bands that played for us, The Lost Causes, FFFA, Weird Science, Bigmouth, Glam Rockz, The Erics and Rory Holl and the Men, and all our staff and helpers because without them we wouldn’t be able to do what we do.
“Mostly we would like to thank everyone that turned up to support us and Macmillan in raising an amazing £2,199.08 in just seven hours.”
Clara White, fundraising manager for Macmillan in Leeds, said: “We cannot thank Kirsty and Colin at The Sportsman Inn enough for their incredible support each year.
“They put in a huge amount of effort to pull off this event and we hugely appreciate it. This donation really will make a massive difference to the lives of people living with cancer here in Leeds.”
