A historic pub in Bury is offering a five-day holiday to France and other goodies as part of an event to support a cause set up in memory of a soldier who was murdered.

The Two Tubs at The Wylde has organised an event with live music, food and entertainment on Saturday, May 21 at 1.30pm.

Soldier Lee Rigby was murdered by two men while he was off duty and walking on a road in London in May 2013.

Funds raised from the event will go towards the Lee Rigby Foundation.

Liam Howarth, who has helped to organise the event, said: “As a lot of people are aware Lee was a local lad who served alongside Stewart for a number of years, so this is an amazing charity, that does brilliant work for the forces and veteran community and holds a special place in our hearts.”

Landlord Stewart Spensley, served with Lee Rigby and will be raising money for the foundation through donations and ticket sales which will cost £10 per person.

This will give guests access to live all-day entertainment, a buffet lunch and a hot evening meal as well as the chance to win some prizes through their raffle and auction at 7pm.

Some of the items up for grabs include signed football shirts, a Sir Alex Ferguson signed drawing, five-day holiday accommodation in France and two VIP weekend tickets for Parklife 2022.

All proceedings will be going towards the foundation, which looks to help bereaved or serving military families and veterans with a support network and means of respite.

Their most recent plan includes a network of static caravans to create more of a holiday break with free entertainment on site.

Liam said: “Me and Stewart are best mates.

"He is the landlord and I’m heavily involved with the pub for the military Monday nights.

With my security company, we have employed veterans from those nights but not only me, other veterans that attend have helped others with different jobs.

"It’s like a family we help each other in any way we can.”

Organisers are appealing to businesses and people to donate items to the raffle and auction if they can.
