[A] cancer charity has written to users of Ulverston Day Services (UDS) to thank them for donating the sum of £80.12. The funds were raised as part of UDS’s involvement in a project to decorate a tree during the Dalton Christmas Tree Festival. A group of the service’s learning disabled clients worked on the project, led by Adult Education tutor, Sue Fletcher.
The tree was decorated by the group, and received donations from the local community in appreciation of their hard work and creativity. The group decided they wanted to donate the funds to Cancer Care and the cheque was presented to Cancer Care’s South Cumbria Community Fundraiser, Richard Cogger in February. The group received their letter of thanks earlier this month.
Cancer Care is a local charity supporting cancer patients and their families throughout South Cumbria and North Lancashire. In his letter thanking the group for their efforts, Richard said:
“The funds you have raised will help to ensure that anyone in our community affected by the impact of cancer and other life limiting conditions can access professional support, free of charge, whenever they need it. For this, we are extremely grateful.”
