A CHARITY event to raise money for Yorkshire Cancer Research is taking place next month.

Ilkley’s Yorkshire Cancer Research committee is hosting a quiz night with ‘pie ‘n’ peas’ on September 22 at Ilkley Lawn Tennis and Squash Club.

People of all ages can attend and admission is £15 each including their meal.

Last year the committee raised around £1,500 for the charity at a similar event, and they are hoping to top it again this year.

Committee member, Catherine Bradley said: “It was a great success when we did the event last year, and that was just coming out of the pandemic, so we’re trying to do this as an annual thing.

“We’ve got a raffle with loads of great prices, there’s going to be the quiz and of course, pie and peas so what’s not to enjoy!”

Yorkshire Cancer Research helps to fund life-saving research for those battling cancer in our region and the Ilkley-based fundraising group is committed to helping the charity raise funds.

Ms Bradley added that anyone looking to get involved with the committee and to help with the fundraising efforts, to get in touch.
