Pub's £2,000 charity pledge
A COMMUNITY pub last night presented £2,000 to the Douglas Macmillan Hospice in memory of its popular landlord who died of cancer.
The cash – raised at the Furlong in Tunstall – was the annual proceeds of its monthly quiz and a pantomime held at Christmas.
Father-of-four Mick Webb, aged 54, died in September after a short battle with pancreatic cancer.
His widow, Jackie, who is the licensee, handed over the cheque before this month's quiz and said: "The Douglas Macmillan was fantastic with Mick. Their nurses came out to him at home and were wonderful."
