A BAR manager’s pink-themed charity evening raised almost £1,200 for cancer sufferers.

Yasmin Green, who works at Elphinstone Sports and Social Club, hosted the Ladies Pink Night on February 4 and the amount raised was totalled up this week.

She said: “The evening went brilliantly and everyone had a really good time.

“We had around 120 people come and we plan to hold a similar event in the near future for Cancer Research UK.

“I was hoping to raise around £1,000 but to get almost £1,200 has made me really chuffed.”

Scores of visitors dressed up in pink costumes and the fundraiser included drag queens, strippers, hunky waiters, buffet and disco.

The club also made up a special pink cocktail.

All the money, which totalled £1,187, will be donated directly to Cancer Research UK, along with 10 per cent from all tickets sold on the night.
