Hey Pesto as Wilsden charity night is just magic
12:52pm Friday 30th August 2013 in Keighley
An evening of dining and magic conjured up more than £1,500 for charity.
The event, at the Pesto Italian restaurant in Wilsden, was in aid of Cancer Support Bradford & Airedale.
Organiser Peter Comer, who has battled cancer for nine years, staged the event in tribute to the help he has received.
He said: “Cancer Support Bradford & Airedale has not only been around to help people for the past 25 years, but it has made a real difference to my own life.
“This was my chance to give something. From the feedback I got on the night, everyone had a good time.”
The ‘Hey Pesto’ evening featured a menu of Italian food and entertainment from magician Jonathan Paul.
Mr Comer, 65, who lives in Harden, was diagnosed with myeloma – a treatable but incurable cancer – in the summer of 2004.
He has undergone bouts of treatment, including radiotherapy and chemotherapy, and a stem cell transplant.
