A family affair turned into a hugely successful fund raising event
Susan Lauder, with the help of her two daughters Cara and Gillian, organised a tea party in Ayton Village Hall on Sunday, March 17, to raise funds for Ovarian Cancer research.
March is Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month and with the help of Susan’s many friends and relatives, the girls raised a fantastic £1900 for the charity
Susan would very much like to thank all her family and friends, without whose help and support this magnificent achievement would not have been possible. Their presence, as well as all the home-baking, raffle and bottle stall prizes, helped to make the afternoon a great success.
Last March Target Ovarian Cancer organised the 50s Challenge (as one in 10 women will develop ovarian cancer in their lifetime). This involved: raising at least £50; letting 50 women know about the symptoms of ovarian cancer; and adding a 50s style to all fundraising! And it proved so successful that the 50s Challenge was repeated again this March.
