A pub has raised more than £40,000 for three cancer charities in five years.
The Black Bear in Walsoken has tirelessly fundraised for the East Anglian Air Ambulance, Addenbrooke’s Hospital C10 cancer ward and Clic Sergeant.
Landlord Joe Hill’s grandson Jack Thulbourn was diagnosed with leukaemia in February 2010. He died nine months later.
The pub puts on charity bungee jumps and golf days every year. Their most recent fundraising has brought in £4,800, to be split evenly between the three charities.
