MEN and women across Buckinghamshire are being urged to become BBQ heroes this summer by pulling on their aprons and cooking up some cash for Cancer Research UK.

BBQ for Cancer Research UK is a new fundraising campaign which calls on supporters to host a BBQ any time this July, or join in the Big BBQ bonanza on the weekend of July 19 to 20.

Hosts are encouraged to invite friends and family to make a donation to attend, to raise money to help beat cancer sooner.

The charity wants people across the region to sign up for a free fundraising pack to start planning.

Helen Johnstone, Cancer Research UK spokesman in Bucks, said: “It’s not about gourmet grub or manicured gardens – it’s about chicken wings, ketchup and good times.

“We’re inviting men and women across Buckinghamshire to join a nation of BBQ’ers getting fired up in the fight against cancer.”

Its BBQ pack contains everything needed to plan the BBQ, including an exclusive BBQ hero chef’s hat, recipe ideas, top tips, decorations, posters and more.

Event hosts can simply collect donations upfront from friends and family or on the day of their BBQ.
