LUDLOW Cancer Support Group's fashion show in March was a sell-out and an outstanding success.

It was organised by members, Claire Taylor and Gaynor Lloyd, and raised £840.

"Since our group started in 2014, members have received a lot of support from the Lingen Davies Cancer Fund in Shrewsbury and the Macmillan Renton Unit at Hereford County Hospital", said Rosemary Wood, chairman of LCSG. "It was unanimously agreed that monies raised at the fashion show should be divided between these two organisations, and we rounded the sum up to £1000, so we can give them £500 each".

Katie Farmer, fundraiser for Macmillan, and Liz Kyle, fundraising officer for Lingen Davies Cancer Fund, accepted the cheques from acting treasurer, Pauline Goslyn, and outlined the ways in which donations are spent.

Both organisations are committed to improving services for cancer patients, and members of the Ludlow Cancer Support Group were amazed to hear how much money had already been raised by grateful supporters, and interested to know how much more was needed.

Whilst one piece of sophisticated equipment can exceed £1 million, the group learnt that 75% of donations were less than £100.
