The event was held to help Rob, of Leyland, raise funds for therapy to shrink his terminal brain tumour and for Longton resident Elaine’s mission to get to Russia for life-changing treatment in her battle against multiple sclerosis.

Fund-raisers donated a total, £5,401, which will be split between the pair.
