AN EPWORTH pub’s plans to hold a fund-raising event in aid of the Lindsey Lodge Hospice has had to be postponed.

The Old School Inn on Battle Green was planning to hold a race night later this month - on Saturday, November 19.

However, due to unforeseen circumstances, it has now been put back until Saturday, December 10 from 7.30pm.

Throughout the year the Old School Inn has been raising money for the Scunthorpe-based hospice. Events have included a family fun day, a fancy-dress golf competition, a disco and a beer festival - resulting in the pub raising more than £1,800.

It is run by Karen Curran and her partner Mitch Mitchell and she pointed out that there will be free admission on the race night and there will also be a pie and peas supper available – again with all the profits going to the Lindsey Lodge.
