A penalty shoot-out and snooker marathon were also held at the club as part of the event in aid of the Tom Prince Cancer Trust.

Owner Richard Jestico said: ‘Blue Day is something that everyone round here feels strongly about so we wanted to do something to support it.

‘At first we were going to just put a bucket out and collect donations but the more we thought about it the more ideas we had and it just took on a life of its own.

‘I’m amazed at the reaction we got and the response from local businesses and individuals wanting to do their bit to help.’

Staff set up a skittle ally and held face painting, gingerbead man biscuit decorating, a raffle, and a disco.

The club’s security doorman Paul Clark said: ‘It’s a great way to bring people together and support a worthwhile cause.’
