The Hoopers Fund Raising for Bowel Cancer West; ?835.00!
Bowel Cancer West were delighted to receive a cheque for £835.00 from Mr and Mrs Hooper who raised this sum from an "open house" all day fund raising event at home in Plymouth. The money was raised through sales of refreshments and cakes, a raffle was held, and donations were received for the popular Bowel Cancer West wristbands. This is the third year that the Hoopers have raised money for the charity, and their fund raising for BCW now totals £1,822.00 to date, thank you to all their friends and family for their continued support.
Laura Langsford, BCW Director comments "We are very grateful for the continuing support for Bowel Cancer West who have just announced the support for 5 travelling fellowships for Doctors and Nurses in 2012/2013. This will enable attendance at regional and national colorectal meetings to obtain new founded knowledge for local application within a clinical or teaching environment.
