Whaplode St Catherine pub backs fight against ovarian cancer

Bosses at a pub in Whaplode St Catherine hope to be pulling in the pounds for a good cause throughout March.

John and Jen Lusher, who own the Blubell in Cranesgate, are for the third year in a row supporting the ovarian cancer charity Ovacome.

Their fundraising was inspired by Moulton gran Lesley Sage, a survivor who is coming up to her sixth anniversary of major surgery.

Lesley said: "Throughout the whole of March, the Bluebell will donate £1 for every carvery served in their restaurant to Ovacome and double this to £2 on Mother’s Day, March 31.

"Ovacome is the only UK ovarian cancer charity to focus entirely on offering support to all those affected by ovarian cancer."

Ovacome has a Freephone helpline, 0800 008 7054, and its work includes teaching health professionals about a disease that can be difficult to spot.

The acronym BEAT covers most but not all symptoms: B is for bloating that is persistent and doesn’t come and go; E is for eating difficulty and feeling full more quickly, A is for abdominal and pelvic pain you feel most days and T is for toilet changes in urination or bowel habits.
