The Woodhall Spa Friends on behalf of Cancer Research UK, which set up nearly 20 years ago, has celebrated after reaching the amazing fundraising milestone of £300,000.

The group, headed up by Chair Sylvia Baxter from Kirkby on Bain, were presented with a prestigious glass award at their recent Halloween Hog Roast event by Andrea Day, Local Fundraising Manager for Lincolnshire from Cancer Research.

Andrea said: “We wanted to celebrate and mark this huge milestone showing our appreciation to Sylvia and the group for their many years of dedication to our cause, they are so committed to raising funds for our life saving research.

“Even after all these years they are still organising fabulous events for so many local people to enjoy, the recent hog roast once again raised over £1,000.00, they are a very committed and inspirational group.

Cancer Research UK relies on all our amazing volunteers across the UK to raise vital funds, cancer survival rates have doubled in the last 40 years and Cancer Research UK has been at the forefront of this, it is because of commitment from people like this we are bringing forward the day when all cancers will be cured.”
