The donation was raised by the Wallasey & District Province Royal Antediluvian Order of Buffaloes (RAOB) with help from the Ladies of the Jade and Bluebell Glades, and the members of the Parkview Social Club RAOB. Fundraising events throughout 2017 included race nights, a BBQ, raffles, tombola’s and the Buffaloes popular Rock Night.
A presentation was held on Saturday 27 January 2018, where the Provincial Grand Primo for 2017 Roger Hodskins presented a cheque to Mark Adams, the representative for CLIC Sargent.
Roger Hodskins said: "It is wonderful in this day and age to belong to an organisation like the Royal Antediluvian Order of Buffaloes, who together with the International Order of Ladies Glades and friends like all the members of the Parkview Social Club, can put together donations to great causes like CLIC Sargent. We welcome new members who are in it to give, and to have fun."
CLIC Sargent Fundraising Engagement Manager Stefanie Underhill said: “We are hugely grateful for the support of Roger, Mandy and The Royal Antediluvian Order of Buffaloes in Wallasey.
"There have been some brilliant fundraising events in the last year, from monthly raffles to their infamous rock night, which is a fantastic evening of entertainment for everyone who attends.
"The figure raised in 2017 is an absolute credit to all the individuals who gave up their time and efforts to help reach such an amazing total.
"All the money raised will make a huge difference to young lives and families who are currently facing cancer. We can’t thank you enough!”
