KIND hearted passers by helped to raise £419.61 for Macmillan Cancer Support earlier this month when the Evesham Vale committee of the charity held its annual street collection.

The event took place on Saturday, May 10, in Evesham town centre and committee treasurer Claire Penny said they were delighted with the outcome.

"The committee would like to express their sincere gratitude to all those people who so generously gave donations enabling Macmillan to provide help and support for people living with a cancer diagnosis and their families," she said.
