Conisbrough family feast raises hundreds to fight cancer

AN ANNUAL slap-up feast raised hundreds of pounds for a cancer charity.

The yearly bash in Conisbrough attracted more than 40 people to enjoy pork loin, chilli con carne, tikka masala...and a hot tub.

Organiser Julie Owen and her partner Dean Firth invite people to their Sandal Road home every August bank holiday and over the last six years have raised £2,000 for Cancer Research.

This year, the event has brought in more than £400, which will be handed over to the Doncaster Cancer Research shop.

The big do, held in memory of family and friends who have had cancer, saw the garden transformed with balloons and decorations for the fun experience.

Julie (53), who sported a pink wig and her six Race for Life medals on the day, said: “It exceeded our expectations.

“We are going to do this every year.

“But this is the first time we have had really glorious weather.”
