STAFF and customers at a local pub put on a colourful face in the name of charity.

In aid of its chosen charity, which it has supported for 10 years, Lord Rosebery held a fundraising fun day with all proceeds going towards children’s charity CLIC Sergeant.

Over the past decade, the Scarborough inn has raised £2,500 for the cause.

James Eckersall, Lord Rosebury’s associate worker, said: “All in all we raised £160 on the day.

“We had facepainting and a massive raffle with various prizes. It went really well, the staff got on board and we got quite a lot of new people in as well as regulars.”

The next fundraising event will be held on October 8 to coincide with the pub’s beer festival.

It will have a cowboys and Indians theme with fancy dress, games and a charity raffle. Other fundraising events are due to take place in the three weeks following.
