THE FUNDRAISING family of cancer patient Ron Thomson raised more than £900 at a charity event.

Family and friends, as well as Moulton Chapel visitors, attended the Christmas bazaar in aid of two pancreatic cancer charities.

Ron (70), of Woodgate Road, Moulton Chapel, suffers from pancreatic cancer and his family held the event to coincide with Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month.

One of Ron’s grandaughter’s Fiona Sewell collected about half of the 200 prizes gathered together by the family for the various tombolas and raffles held on the day.

Ron’s daughter Serena Thompson said: “It went quite well. “We didn’t have that many people come, but those who did turn out more than made up for it and spent quite a lot of money to boost our total.

“We would really like to thank everyone who has helped out and those who supported the event.”

South Holland district councillor Rodney Grocock also lent his support.

The family is now planning a fundraising stall at Spalding Flower Parade in May to raise more cash for the good causes.
