£928!! How great is that?
Jackie and Sharon have just been presented with a cheque from Louise Beech, her husband Richard and daughter Imogen, Louise was diagnosed with breast cancer 3 years ago and we were able to give her and her family a little bit of help. They organised a 'Night at the Races' at Colby Football Club and raised this fabulous amount for us. Thank you so much, and it was great to see Louise looking so well.

Sarah (lovely) Surgeon has very kindly offered to make (free of charge) heart shaped cushions for patients after surgery or radiotherapy. These lovely cushions are so soft and made with loose covers for washing. The ribbon can go on top of the shoulder if you like to keep it in place. Sarah will make any to order if you have a favourite fabric. The hospital have a supply and so do we. If you know anyone who would like a lovely cuddly cushion, get in touch by email or our facebook page.
