Shoulder of Mutton, Lockwood

Huddersfield veterans attended a barbeque held at the Shoulder of Mutton in Lockwood on Saturday, 6th August, where a barbeque cook-off was held to raise funds.

All the proceeds from that day went to Huddersfield and District Army Veterans Association and on Wednesday, 24th August 2016, a cheque for the amount of 575.00 was presented to the veterans by the landlord of the Shoulder of Mutton.

The money raised during the event is going towards the Somme visit in 2017 and the amount took the total raised to 9,860.00. A spontaneous donation on the evening by a pub regular of 140.00 meant the 10,000.00 target for the veterans' visit to Ypres has now been reached.

Veterans and their partners attended the cheque presentation on Wednesday night to show their appreciation for the support given by the Shoulder of Mutton to Huddersfield and District Army Veterans Association.

A good evening was had by all.
