Big Charity Night in Barnstaple to fight cancer

Joseph Bulmer

A Barnstaple hospital worker whose family has been greatly affected by cancer has organised a fun fund raising evening to help fight back against the disease.

The Big Charity Night is at the Ebberley Arms in Bear Street on Wednesday of next week (October 19) from 6.30pm, with plenty of live entertainment, family fun and games.

Tayler Downs, aged 19, put the event together with help from friends Stephanie Jordan and Alexandra Parkin to raise money for Cancer Research UK and breast cancer.

She was inspired to try and make a difference after both her auntie and her gran lost their lives to cancer.

On the night there will be live music from Petroc music and performing arts students plus a variety of stalls and games for guests to enjoy. Avon advisers and reps will also be on hand throughout the evening.
