A CHARITY event in memory of a much-loved Antrobus landlord has raised £5,500.

Trevor Collins, along with wife Sandra, ran the Antrobus Arms for over a decade before he sadly died in September 2016.

In a touching tribute, friends and family came together to raise money for a cancer charity and a hospice providing palliative care.

Barry Davies – who helped organised the event along with the Collins family – knew Trevor as a generous man always happy to lend a hand for a good cause.

“I was part of the Antrobus Arms Sunday league football team about 10 years ago, and Trevor always used to help us out whenever we did things for charity.

Northwich Guardian:

“We decided to try and raise a few quid for charity, and so we reformed the team for a game against another team who we used to play back then.

We managed to get pretty much all of the players back together, and had a fundraiser in the evening after the match.”

Watched on by the Collins family, the match on April 14 ended 1-1 between Antrobus Arms and Stretton Young Farmers, who also based themselves at the pub during Trevor and Sandra’s tenure.

The fundraiser then proceeded to the Antrobus Village Hall where a raffle, auction and bar helped raise thousands for Macmillan Cancer Support and St Rocco’s Hospice.

Businesses including nearby Heyrose Golf Club and pubs in the area helped out with prizes, which were auctioned off to top up donations made for entry to the event.

Now that the total money raised has been collected and counted, the Collins family will split the £5,500 between Macmillan and St Rocco’s.

The organisers would like to thank everyone involved in the fundraiser and the brilliant total.
