Charity bonfire went off with a bang!

It was a dazzling weekend of rockets soaring through the air, bright lights in the sky and a show-stopping bonfire night, as one local food business asked customers to dig deep to raise money for charity.

Roaming Roosters hosted a charity bonfire on Friday evening on its farm in Barrowford Road, Higham, raising  £4,000 for Pendleside Hospice.

“The evening was a huge success; there was a real buzz about the place as thousands flocked to Roosters to attend the event,” said Paul White, business development manager at Roaming Roosters.

“All staff worked for free and were on hand to serve food and drink to attendees. There was a brilliant community feel; our local suppliers also gave very generous contributions to the event, helping us to showcase a spectacular array of fireworks.”

“It was lovely to give something back to our local community, and host an evening which catered for both adults and children; we’ve had some great feedback and are already in talks about next year’s event.”

Suppliers included Harvey Environmental, Youngs Beers, Wines and Spirits and Hills Fine Foods to name a few.

Renowned for their quality, grass fed meat produce, Roaming Roosters served a selection of dishes including hotpot, pulled chicken, sausage, black puddings, homemade parkin and of course, treacle toffee.

The charity bonfire marks another successful event in the calendar at Roaming Roosters, with Christmas preparations in full force over the next seven weeks. George Cropper, farm shop manager said: “It’s an exciting time of year, and we like to do everything we can to involve our customers. The bonfire was a huge success, with a fantastic amount raised for a charity close to our hearts.”
