The past Ladies’ Captain of the Vale Golf and Country Club presented a cheque for £8,075 to Jacqui Clements, events co-ordinator of the Worcestershire Breast Unit Haven.

The Haven is a new independent charity that relies solely on donations and all their care is free to patients.

Opened when the Worcestershire Breast Unit opened in February 2016 on the site of the Worcestershire Royal Hospital, it aims to make the Breast Unit one of the best in the UK.

Providing clinical services and assistance over and above what the NHS can offer, any monies raised go towards complementary therapies on site at the Unit. Further support such as Well-being evenings, Pink Ribbon Pilates courses and Look Good Feel Better Masterclasses are also held.

Jacquie Clements, in thanking the Vale Ladies, said the generous donation would be of great help to the work of the Haven.
