Cllr Troy Gallagher (Lab, Bunhill) ran a Christmas quiz at The Britannia Pub, in Ironmonger Row, on December 16, to raise money for St Luke’s, in Central Street.

The Britannia landlord Brendan Cluskey and Cllr Gallagher presented services users at St Luke’s with a £400 cheque on Wednesday.

Cllr Gallagher told the Gazette: “I was absolutely delighted to be able to do it.

“I run on every year at the pub and it’s always generously supported by residents.

“I also want to say thank Brendan and his wife Dee and all the people at the Britannia for their support.”

The cash will help St Luke’s buy Boccia equipment for its Men’s Shed club. Boccia is a paralympic sport similar to bowls.
