Beckett event money handed over
Thousands of pounds raised during an event to mark the 100th anniversary of the birth of Samuel Beckett is being handed over to a cancer charity.

The event at Reading Town Hall in April featured well known actors, such as Jude Law and Alan Rickman, performing excerpts from the writer's work.

More than 22,000 was donated and on Tuesday the money will be given to Macmillan Cancer Support.

The charity said the cash would be used to help fund a benefits advice service.
