A Scarborough man has just been appointed area fundraiser for a national charity whose aims are to promote and provide a helpline for women concerned about hereditary breast cancer.

Karl Skow has been a charity collector for the last eighteen months and is delighted to be now working exclusively on behalf of the The National Hereditary Breast Cancer Helpline, which Wendy Watson MBE has been operating since 1996.

The charity organisation she started has helped thousands of women come to terms with decision making if they are found to carry the BRCA gene, and relies on members of the public to donate their unwanted clothes and goods to fund the service.

Karl will be out and about in the area on his rounds collecting any bags that are filled for his charity by kind-hearted members of the public in Scarborough and district.
