Pollard Bower Solicitors have helped local fund-raiser Gavin Roper recover £200 for Macmillan Cancer Support that had been pledged at a charity auction but not paid in full.

The money was raised at a charity event organised by Gavin in 2007.

Determined to get the donation, Gavin enlisted the help of Darran Harris, at Pollard Bowers Solicitors in Hargreaves Street, Burnley. He agreed to pursue the debt free of charge and, together, they have successfully got the money which will now go towards helping people locally affected by cancer.

Mr Roper, a regular fund-raiser, who has raised over £8,000 for Macmillan in the past, was delighted at the outcome and pleased the situation is now closed. Pollard Bower has also agreed to help Macmillan in future with other fund-raising initiatives.
