East Lancashire Hospice

Accrington pub celebrates Christmas in Summer!

Christmas might be the furthest thing from your mind at the moment - but not for these festive fans from Accrington! Staff and regulars at the Arden Inn, Abbey St who held their annual 'Halfway to Christmas' party! Landlord Mark Jackson said they chose to support the hospice as customer Pat Whiteside has been cared for by the hospice. Around 300 people got into the Christmas spirit raising £376.34. 
Mr Jackson said: "I prefer our July Christmas to the one in December! It was a brilliant day and night. We had 2 bands on and everyone was up dancing in their fancy dress and Christmas jumpers. We had collection buckets out and raffled some Christmas hampers. We even had a snow machine outside which confused passers by as they thought it was really snowing!"
The pub is now gearing up for its Summer party which, naturally takes places on 27 December!
Merry Christmas to everyone at the Arden Inn!
