There was a bumper turnout for the latest Fight for George fundraiser in Cookham.

The event, a full day of food, drink and live music at the Kings Arms, in the High Street, saw about 250 people enjoy the festivities and show their support for the campaign.

It was held on Sunday, just over a month to the day since the parents of three-year-old George Ferriman, from Furze Platt, announced his cancer was in remission.

And it produced a bumper total, collecting about £500 for the charities that have helped George through his treatment.

The pub’s deputy manager, Tommy Tribe organised the event.

It was a chance for a last ‘big bash’ to mark his last shift at the pub. Speaking on the night, he said: “Pretty much everyone here is a local, which is great because it means that everyone knows about the campaign and what’s going on.

“It’s all about the locals getting involved and helping out the charities that have helped George.

“And I think this one has been phenomenal – topping it is going to be hard.”
