The event raised £1,621 for Prostate Cancer UK, a charity which supports men who have been diagnosed, and funds research for a cure.

Retail director Ian Larkins said: “I was really impressed by the support from customers, staff and suppliers on the day. Bryan was a very valued member of the team and it was great seeing everyone get involved.”
