The Silver Cup in St Albans Road teamed up with Charles Wells Brewery over the past year to raise money for people with prostate cancer, raising around £2,000 in total.

On Sunday, January 27, the pub held a party to celebrate Tony Reeder’s sixth year as landlord and raised a further £1,009 for the charity.

Tony said: “It was my six year anniversary and what I normally do is treat my customers and friends to a bit of lunch and we just had a nice party and some music.

“I decided as a donation to the lunch to take £5 off everyone, and we were also given a large box of chocolates which we raffled off.”

The £2,000 over the past year was raised through various events in the pub, including a football table set up during the World Cup where people had to donate money to Prostate Cancer UK before playing.

They also had a ukelele night with all proceeds going to the charity, and another will be held on Saturday, February 16.
