Charity Day at Ross Market
Macmillan Cancer Support held a fund raising morning at
Ross Market on Friday, 18th August, which as can be seen
by the virtually empty table below, went very well. The
morning was to raise money towards a £3.3 million
oncology unit at Hereford hospital so that local cancer
sufferers do not have the added stress of having to travel
to Cheltenham for treatment.
supporter, Steve Turner provided music on the barrel organ
to entertain customers at the event and at 2:30 pm, Macmillan
balloons, which had been purchased on the morning were released
by Ian Ashpole of Wye Valley Aviation.
