Hundreds of pounds were raised for charity when The Dearnesman pub in Wath raised a glass to England’s patron saint during a St George’s day celebration.

Landlord and landlady, Frank and Sharon Lancaster, who have run the hostelry for the past nine months, had trimmed up the pub in red, white and blue with the help of staff and friends.

Charities benefiting from the day included Help For Heroes, Poppy Appeal and Headway, of Rotherham, that helps people suffering from brain injuries.

And others receiving cash help were local special needs children that the pub’s darts and pool teams had identified and Wath and West Melton OAP’s.

Frank said: “Following our first ever St George’s charity day we intend to have one every year from now on. We aim to raise at least £5,000 so every charity gets something.”
