A charity fun day is to be held at a Hitchin pub in memory of a much-missed regular who died in May.

The fundraiser in honour of Richard Cornes will be held at the Three Moorhens pub on Saturday, August 25, in aid of the Great Ormond Street Hospital Charity.

There will be a barbecue, bouncy castle, face-painting, a live band outside, and karaoke in the bar from 7pm.

“He was one of our locals here,” said pub general manager Leanne Warren.

“It affected everyone as a community.

“We’re just trying to bring everyone together to remember him and raise some money for GOSH, that looked after him.”

Richard, who was 39 when he died, now has a memorial plaque on the wall at The Three Moorhens. He was a keen Tottenham Hotspur football fan and loved karaoke.

The fun will start at 1pm and go on until late. To find out more, call the pub on 01462 459039.
