Defibrillator Target Reached thanks to the Barnby Burger Challenge

Congratulations to Glenn and commiserations to Howard, but what a great night of entertainment.

Thanks to everyone who braved the cold and supported the Bonfire Night Barnby Burger Challenge.  In particular to the chefs Glenn and Howard who donated the burgers.  To Les, Derick and the ‘BBC’ commitee who organized the event, along with the village hall committee, the parish council, and all the volunteers who donated their time/food/drink/raffle prizes.  Thanks also to Willow Tree Cottages B&B and The Willow Tree Pub for the use of their car parks and to the Jukes family for allowing the use of their field for the launch of the fireworks.

£1,030 was made on the night.  When added to the £542 raised online, £500 donation from Cllr Maureen Dobson County Council fund and £150 donations to the Parish Council , the total reaches the magic £2,200 target which is fantastic news!

A response is now awaited from the Community Heartbeat Trust about next steps and installation of a defibrillator in the phone box.
