Big thanks for giant donation

FUNDRAISERS in Scarborough have been thanked for their efforts in raising more than £23,000 for a cancer support charity.

A total of almost £23,500 was raised last year through donations and fundraising events in and around Scarborough to help the work of the Macmillan Cancer Support Charity.

Joan Forbes, chairman of the charity’s Scarborough and District fundraising group, said; “This is a fantastic result, and I would like to say a very big thank you to the people of the Scarborough area for all their donations, and to all those who helped with events and collections. All the money raised will go towards helping people affected by cancer.”

Mrs Forbes and her group will be continuing fundraising this year. One of their main events is the annual Coffee Morning at the Grand Hotel on September 27.
