Whaplode St Catherine fundraiser underway for ovarian cancer charity
A month-long fundraiser in aid of the ovarian cancer charity, Ovacome, is underway at the Blue Bell pub in Whaplode St Catherine.
Inspired by Moulton grandmother Lesley Sage (71), who has survived the disease, pub bosses John and Jen Lusher are donating £1 from every carvery meal sold at weekends – and £2 for carvery meals booked on Mother’s Day, which is on Sunday.
Exciting raffle prizes include a 20-minute flight for two in an Acrosport II plane and a commercial drone flying experience.
Lesley, a volunteer trustee with Ovacome, said: “Ovarian cancer has a very low survival rate and most women are diagnosed at a late stage once the cancer has spread.”
The charity raises awareness of symptoms and provides information and support to sufferers and their families.
March is Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month.
