MACMILLAN is searching for a sausage sponsor.

The Cirencester charity is seeking financial backing for hundreds of sausages to be served at its annual bangers and mash quiz in October.

The event will be held at Bingham Hall, Cirencester to raise funds for cancer sufferers through its quiz teams and supper.

Chairman Jenny Jarvis is appealing for financial help with the 700 sausages that will be served to participants along with mash, gravy and onions or baked beans on the night.

She is also looking for volunteers to help out in the kitchen and serve up the food to quiz members on October 22.

Supporters are also holding a family day to mark Macmillan’s 100th birthday on July 17, at Cirencester Rugby Club.

It will include a fundraising barbecue, competitions, sideshows and stalls.

Anyone who is willing to sponsor the sausages or help at the bangers and mash quiz should contact Jenny on 07917 037960.

Tickets for the evening will be on sale soon.
