A MAGNIFICENT EFFORT FOR CANCER RESEARCH UK

Jenny Overson has been holding annual coffee mornings for over ten years, which combined with sponsorship money for Race For Life, etc., makes a total of £3,776 raised for Cancer Research UK.

The photo shows Jenny introducing Mrs Melvin, the area manager for volunteers for Cancer Research UK, who spoke about recent developments in cancer care on the occasion of this year’s event, which raised £425.

Jenny remembers her delight when she raised £60, £70 then £80.  In 2002 it was £200 and has now hit the £400 mark twice which, she feels, is a remarkable tribute to the continuing loyal support and generous giving even in this last two years, when times are generally harder and charitable giving is suffering.

Jenny has been helped by many friends over the time she has been  hosting the coffee mornings, but on this occasion wishes to thank Sylvia Richardson, Pauline Payne, Pauline Butler, Celia Terrey, Ann Harman and Jean Brookhouse for manning the Bring & Buy, selling raffle tickets and serving the coffee and biscuits.

 

The date for 2012 has already been fixed. so make a note in the back of your diary. It is Wednesday 11 July.
