The Forfar committee of Macmillan Cancer Support has raised a fantastic £445 from a shopping night at Canmore Bowling Club.

The committee was delighted with the support at the shopping evening and for raising the funds for the cause.

A spokeswoman from the group said: “We would like to thank the Canmore Bowling Club for the use of their club rooms.

“We would also like to thank the ladies who came along to shop.

“Stephanie from PartyLite and Nicola from The Body Shop were greatly appreciated for their demonstrations.”

Macmillan reaches three in four cancer sufferers and it is their objective to reach them all and give support practically, emotionally and financially by funding health-care professionals and financial advisers.

This can only be achieved by kind donations from the public and for this the Forfar fund-raising committee would like to say a very big thank you to all who support them throughout the year.

No one should have to face cancer alone.

Macmillan also campaigns for change. It says: “We are a force for change, listening to people affected by cancer and working together to improve cancer care.

“People who live with cancer are experts by experience. Together we use this knowledge to make a positive difference to the lives of people affected by cancer.

“This could be anything from getting a coffee machine installed in a waiting room, to bringing about changes in the law.

“We fight discrimination – from challenging unfair travel costs and insurance policies to improving the national benefits system. Together we challenge the status quo, we push for change, we lead the way.”
