Shoppers raise £1,100 for cancer charity
BIG-HEARTED shoppers have been thanked after helping to raise more than £1,000 for charity.
Macmillan Cancer Support collected £1,138 thanks to the generosity of shoppers in Sainsbury’s in the town centre, as well as people in Station Road during collections on April 1 and 2.
Chairman of the Gerrards Cross and Buckinghamshire South fundraising group, Liz King, said: “In Buckinghamshire, an average of 11 people every day are diagnosed with cancer.
“This is a significant sum of money as £1,014 could pay for a Macmillan nurse for a week, helping people living with cancer and their families receive essential medical, practical and emotional support, and we thank everybody who stopped to drop some money into our collection buckets.”
The group has several fundraising events planned for 2016 and is always looking for new fundraisers and volunteers.
