Calendar presenter Christine Talbot was in the village of Burn near Selby on Friday March 21 to collect a total of £1000 for Cancer Research UK.
The money was raised over Christine’s twelve months as Burn’s ‘Honorary Duchess’, a title bestowed when she switched on the village Christmas lights in 2013.
From collections at the lights event, including the Christmas market in the Methodist Chapel, donations from residents and the Yorkshire Countrywomen’s group and last June’s Big Lunch, plus the giant whisky bottle always available for spare change on the Wheatsheaf bar, the grand total came as a surprise to Burn’s latest VIP.
I can’t believe that such a tiny village has managed to raise so much cash! It’s brilliant and I am really honoured to be accepting the money on behalf of Cancer Research UK, a cause very close to my heart after my breast cancer scare a couple of years ago. The charity does amazing work, and every penny we can send on will help enormously.”

Employees at Yorkshire Fresh Fruit (YFF) in Camblesforth, near Selby, were told the news by Icelandic parent company Bakkovor on Friday.
Bakkavor can confirm it is entering into a period of consultation with all 445 employees at its Yorkshire Fresh Fruit (YFF) business in Selby, North Yorkshire with regard to a proposed closure of the YFF business following the loss of a major customer.
The consultation process will last 45 days during which time YFF will be working closely with UNITE, the recognised union for the site, as well as considering all representations made on behalf of the Company’s employees. Bakkavor appreciates that this is an unsettling and difficult time for everyone at YFF and would like to stress that this proposal in no way reflects the commitment and hard work of the employees at the site.
