THE manager of a Ludlow charity shop has been getting support for a month long initiative to help raise funds to fight cancer.

Jack Childs started his October of special fund raising by doing press ups outside the Cancer Research shop in Ludlow town centre.

He also has other things planned during the coming days involving staff and customers.

Almost everyone will be directly or indirectly touched by cancer during their lifetime.

But like many charities, Cancer Research has had a difficult year with many fund raising events having to be cancelled because of the coronavirus whilst the disease continues to ravage lives.
