Carlton pub charity night raises £3,500 for city cancer ward


Families and friends visiting terminally-ill cancer patients at a city hospital are set to benefit from new and improved facilities after a charity fundraiser brought in £3,500 to give the ward a facelift.

The Ladies Night, which took place last Friday, was organised by the Elwes Arms in Carlton to help bring in money which can be used to buy new furniture and improve facilities for visitors at the Frazer Ward in Nottingham City Hospital.

The ward looks after terminally-ill women suffering from cancer.

Ladies attending the fun-filled evening were served at their tables by ‘butlers in the buff’, and also enjoyed cocktails & canapes, music and entertainment.

Elwes Arms landlady Beccy Webster said: “I am so pleased at how the night went. All the ladies had a wonderful time and so did the staff, it was a great event for a great cause.

“In total we raised £3500 which is going to make such a difference to the ward.

“A lot of preparation went in to the night and I can’t thank Rhiannon and Amy for everything they did, Grace for decorating the room and supplying the sweetie cart and also the chocolate fountain and Craig for DJing. Everyone really pulled together to make it a success. I just wish we could do it all again.”
