On Sunday the 1st of June Godwins of Penwortham, near Preston, teamed up with their neighbouring pub to hold a weekend of charity events to raise money for St Catherine^s Hospice in Lotock Hall. Godwins held the event in memory of Pat Johnson, who ran the shop for many years, and the shop is still owned by Pat^s family.
