Owner of The Red Lion Hotel, Jeremy Powell said: “It was a delight to see so many people join us recently as we raised money for a charity close to the hearts of many.

The efforts of our whole team in baking, preparing and running the event were gratefully appreciated and to see so many familiar and new faces through our doors was heartwarming.

My thanks goes to Stuart for agreeing to cut both mine and Warren’s hair.”

Jamie Davenport, Area Fundraising Manager for Macmillan said: “It’s thanks to businesses like the Red Lion that Macmillan can continue to offer support to people that need it most. We rely on fundraising for 98% of our income, and Macmillan’s services have been needed more than ever over the past 18 months. A big Thank You from me on behalf of Macmillan in Lincolnshire.”
