The generous landlord of a village pub sacrificed birthday presents for his 60th this year in favour of donations to the Rosemere Cancer Foundation.

Paul Leigh, of the Crooked Billet in Worsthorne, held a party at the pub for his landmark birthday which raised money for the charity which supports cancer sufferers around the North-West.

His proud wife Alison said: "We would like to express thanks to all our family and friends for their support and for the fantastic amount of £547 raised last Saturday.

"Rosemere is a charity close to our hearts."
