Char­ity sup­port

The Galloway News - - FRONT PAGE -

Or­gan­is­ers were de­lighted with the turnout for a soup and sweet event to raise funds for CLIC Sar­gent.

CLIC is the UK’s lead­ing can­cer char­ity for chil­dren, young peo­ple and their fam­i­lies.

Its teams pro­vide spe­cial­ist sup­port across the UK and the Kirkcud­bright event was to help say thanks for the treat­ment be­ing re­ceived by a lit­tle girl and her par­ents from the town.

Mary De­war and Moira Steel or­gan­ised the event in the bowl­ing club pavil­ion.There was a huge turnout and a to­tal of £1,630 was raised. Mary said: “It was a tremen­dous re­sponse and the good thing is that all the money raised here will be spent in Dumfries and Gal­loway.

“It is the lead­ing chil­dren’s can­cer char­ity and in this par­tic­u­lar case the fam­ily is re­ceiv­ing great sup­port.”
