Help Southport fundraisers call cancer’s bluff

Local cheese and wine lovers are invited to a special ‘Call my Bluff’ themed tasting evening this month to raise money for cancer research.

The Southport-based fundraising committee for North West Cancer Research will hold the is event on Friday 21st April at Hillside Golf Club with all proceeds donated to the charity, which funds life-saving cancer research.

As well as raising money, guests will also raise a few glasses, as they sample various wines and attempt to sort fact from fiction by guessing the correct wine type from a panel of statements.

Tickets cost £20 and includes entry, six wine samples and a selection of locally-sourced cheeses, which have been paired with the wine choices.

Last year’s event raised £1500 for North West Cancer Research. This year the Liverpool branch of Barclaycard has agreed to match fund up to £1000 of the money raised.

Olive Cutts, chair of the Southport Committee, said: “Last year’s event was great fun and we are expecting this year to be even better. We have already seen a positive response from the local community with over half of tickets sold

“With the help from Barclaycard Match Funding we will hopefully raise even more money this year for North West Cancer Research.”

North West Cancer Research is the region’s biggest funder of cancer research and has committed to funding more than £11million worth of life-saving cancer research over the next five years.

The Call My Bluff cheese and wine evening starts from 7pm on Friday 21st April at Hillside Golf Club, Hillside, Southport. To purchase tickets please contact Olive Cutts on
