A quiz night in memory of former Haverhill councillor, the late Paul McManus, has raised just under £500 for St Nicholas Hospice Care.
The evening, organised by staff at The Woolpack pub in Haverhill, raised £455 for the hospice which supported Paul and his family during his battle with pancreatic cancer.
Paul, 68, died at his home last June and was described as ‘passionate’ about his adoptive town where he lived for 40 years.
He and his wife Elaine had been married 37 years.
He served Haverhill as a borough and town councillor, serving on Haverhill Town Council for eight years and on St Edmundsbury Borough Council for four.
He had also been a stirling supporter of the Three Counties Community Transport scheme driving for the charity after retiring from the chemical industry where he worked as an engineer.
Paul also became a driving instructor and assessor.
Local businesses supported the quiz night, organised by Keeley Skipp and colleagues, with generous donations for the raffle.
As well as providing respite care at the hospice St Nicholas Hospice Care also provides care in people’s own homes.
