Bury Lions Club has raised hundreds of pounds for Brain Tumour Research.

Members of the club were in the Mill Gate Shopping Centre from March 25 to March 30 and held a "guess the weight of the Easter egg" competition.

The giant Easter egg was crafted by Slattery and members of the public paid £1 per go of guessing its weight.

The correct weight was placed in a sealed envelope with the winning £50.

The second prize was a chocolate hamper with an assortment of chocolates and the third prize was an Easter egg.

The giant egg was donated to the children's outpatient department at Fairfield General Hospital.

Many came close to guessing the final weight, but the lucky winner of the £50 was Georgina Kefford who guessed correctly at 7,055g.

The second place winner was Dylan Euston who enjoyed the hamper over the Easter period.

And the third prize was won by a little girl called Ruby, who was very happy to receive her prize.

On Friday, April 5, Lions president Jacqui Sorfleet, Lion 1st vice president Katie Sorfleet and lion Vivien Marcus attended the hospital to hand over chocolate treats.

A total amount of £252.08 was raised by those attempting to guess the weight.
