Four charities are thousands of pounds better off thanks to Crowland Cancer Fund.
Since its inception in 1990, £500,000 has been donated to various bodies dealing with cancer patients. This year’s total is the highest for any year, amounting to £57,500 which has been split between Peterborough Hospital Cancer Treatment appeal (£30,000), Sue Ryder Thorpe Hall Hospice (£15,000) which will help purchase an ultrasound machine, Marie Curie Cancer Care (£8,500) and St Barnabas Hospice (£4,000). A presentation evening held at the University Academy Holbeach (Crowland campus) and was attended by volunteers and friends of Crowland Cancer Fund together with representatives from the organisations receiving cheques. The cheques were presented by fund chairman Frank Barrett who founded the charity.
