The outgoing Mayor of Bare and his wife have given back to a charity very close to their hearts.

Cameron and Marisa Seddon handed over £300 to The Bay Prostate Cancer Support Group, which helped Marisa’s late father through his illness.

Mario Ottonello, a well known artist and restauranteur from Morecambe, passed away last year.

Money was raised from the Barefest Mayoral Auction held at Bare Village Club on June 8, an annual event to raise money for the chosen charities of the retiring Mayor of Bare.

A watercolour print of the quay at Lancaster, painted by Mario, raised £100 at the auction.

The Bay Prostate Cancer Support Group is based at Slynedales, Lancaster, and meets every second Tuesday in the month, offering support of people with cancer, their families and carers.

The Seddons’ second chosen charity was Animal Care at Lancaster, which also received £300. Cameron and Marisa have rehomed two animals through Animal Care in recent years.

Money was raised at the auction from 18 items.

These included a signed framed photo taken by Cameron, knitted characters from the new Bare Trails and Tales book written by Bare village chemist Dorothy McKenzie, and a VIP ticket for any Morecambe FC game for next season.
