A Littleport foodstore is helping young cancer sufferers and their families with support during vital treatment.
The Central England Co-operative foodstore, in Wisbech Road, has raised
£985.31 for CLIC Sargent.
CLIC Sargent provides clinical, practical, and emotional support to help young people cope with cancer and get the most out of life.
The store’s effort was then match funded by the Anglia Co-operative Community Fund and a cheque for £1970.62 was presented to Karen Roberts, area fundraising manager at CLIC Sargent.
