Very busy spell ahead for charity

Angus local committee for Cancer Research UK has a very busy period ahead.

Chairperson Alana Loudon advised that there are three big events coming up as follows:-

October 30 - the first Angus Big Pink Zumba for breast cancer month; November 6 - the second Christmas Gift Fare; January 1 - the second New Year’s Day Dook.

They also have two store collections in December.

Alana said: “The committee members who organise these fantastic events are all volunteers.

“They work very hard and give their free time as they are all committed to raising money for Cancer Research UK which is such a worthwhile cause.

“We are inviting the people of Angus to support us and come along to one of the events – or better still all three!”

Thanks to the contribution made by the people of Angus, Cancer Research UK was able to spend nearly £34 million last year in Scotland on some of the UK’s leading scientific and clinical research.

The charity’s ground-breaking work into the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of cancer has helped save millions of lives. This work is funded entirely by the public.
