IT WAS a different kind of two little ducks, as a night of bingo was held by Chichester Canal volunteers to raise money for St Wilfrid’s Hospice.


Following the recent loss of canal volunteer Judy Saxon, her family had asked that donations to St Wilfrid’s Hospice be considered.


Around 40 canal volunteers and their partners came together for a fun evening of conversation and laughter.


The first two games took place with Andrew Gibson and Dudley Pound calling. The room was alive with the numbers appropriate nickname being echoed back to them.


LA Fish, who, when they learned that all monies raised for the night would be going to St Wilfrid’s hospice, refused to submit a bill, provided the delicious fish and chip supper.


A raffle held by Andrew and Clare Gibson followed, before another two games of bingo finished off the night.


Trustee Catherine Cannon said: “It was a wonderful occasion and gave great pleasure to the Chichester Canal volunteers to see Dudley Pound, pictured above, to be able to hand over a cheque of £507 over to St Wilfrid’s Hospice.”


Dudley said: “This sum was above and beyond what anyone expected to raise, thanks in a large part to the generosity of LA Fish.


“A huge and sincere to all those who attended the event, to those who helped to organise it, those who donated to the raffle and an extra special thank you to Adam at LA Fish.”
