AFABULOUS Only Fools and Horses fundraiser raised thou­sands of pounds for char­ity.

Com­mu­nity Link Foun­da­tion or­gan­ised the event which was held at South­port Rugby Club and while the cash is still be­ing counted, it raised around £10,000.

The event was spon­sored by Mark and Lyn Cun­ning­ham of An­thony James Es­tate Agents on Hoghton Street.

Their in­cred­i­bly gen­er­ous do­na­tion of £10,000 made the event such a huge suc­cess as it meant that all the money raised from ticket sales went di­rectly to the char­ity.

The fundrais­ing night which was part of South­port Com­edy Fes­ti­val, was called Only Fools and 3 cour­ses as the din­ner was served by ac­tors in char­ac­ter from the hit TV pro­gramme.

There was themed com­edy through­out the evening be­fore The dead­Beats Band en­ter­tained the guests.

The evening ended with a disco and plenty of danc­ing.

Mark said: “We were de­lighted to spon­sor this event to help Com­mu­nity Link Foun­da­tion.

“Our busi­ness is lo­cated at the heart of South­port and it is im­por­tant to us to sup­port peo- ple in the area that we live and work in.

“Over the last few years we have seen the great work that Com­mu­nity Link Foun­da­tion does, so we wanted to show our sup­port.

“It was a great night and we look for­ward to the next fundraiser.”

Com­mu­nity Link Foun­da­tion gives out grants to sup­port in­di­vid­u­als and or­gan­i­sa­tions in South­port, Formby and Orm­skirk and the sur­round­ing ar­eas.

Enda Ry­lands, chair­man of Com­mu­nity Link Foun­da­tion, said: “We are in­cred­i­bly grate­ful to An­thony James Es­tate Agents for spon­sor­ing this event - it re­ally made a dif­fer­ence to the suc­cess of the night. Thank you very much to ev­ery­one who at­tended the event and of­fered their sup­port.
