THREE volunteers for the Spalding and Holbeach Macmillan Cancer Support, who have dedicated 50 years to the charity between them, have received long service awards.

Committee members Val James and Ann Creasey have served 20 years each and Carolyn Naylor ten years.

They were presented with certificates by chairman Mick Reeve at an awards night held at Spalding Lifestyle, where committee members celebrated the achievement with champagne and canapes.

The awards were for the period up to 2011, which was the group’s centenary year. Last year volunteers raised £80,000 from various fundraisers, including a centenary ball.

Mr Reeve said: “I am delighted to present 20 and ten years’ long service awards to three committee members.

“Not many people give such support to one charity and it’s a remarkable achievement.”
