Ballroom dancers at Sidmouth Conservative Club raise £530 for Macmillan Cancer Support

BALLROOM dancers at Sidmouth Conservative Club have raised a massive £530 for their chosen charity, Macmillan Cancer Support.

Joyce Burnham, chairman of the charity’s Sidmouth support group, was presented a cheque by John and Sonia Davies at Sidmouth Conservative Club recently.

The money will go towards recruiting and training Macmillan support officers, cancer information nurses and welfare advisers, who are so important to people suffering from cancer.

This is Macmillan’s centenary year and it hopes to raise more money than ever to address the gaps in providing one-to-one cancer support from healthcare professionals.

The charity also wants to run more courses to help people cope with cancer and improve the way cancer care is delivered.
