The White Horse and the Jolly Sailors pubs in Brancaster Staithe have yet again proved to be champion fundraisers to fight cancer.

Between them the customers, staff and suppliers of the two pubs have raised an amazing £10,961.61 for Macmillan Cancer Support in the past 10 years.

They reached the five-figure sum after carol singing in December that raised a whopping £1,800.

Georgina Daniels, fundraising manager for Macmillan Cancer Support in West Norfolk, picked up the latest cheque at the White Horse on Thursday.

Georgina said: “I can’t express how grateful we all are at Macmillan for the continued support of the White Horse and the Jolly Sailors. Yet another substantial donation from them allows us to help those affected by cancer in the local community.”

“Donations like this are able to make a huge difference to the lives of those affected by cancer, and we really are so grateful to the White Horse and the Jolly Sailors for everything they’ve done.”

She said this latest donation would “help out in a significant and tangible way.”

James Nye, the managing director of Anglian Country Inns, the company that owns both establishments,said: “We pull out all the stops to raise as much money as possible and this is an amazing amount to have raised, especially in this economic climate.

“We hosted fun events to raise the money and we are delighted that all proceeds are being donated to this very worthwhile charity.”
