AN INSPIRATIONAL group committed to raising vital funds to support charities have accomplished an impressive fundraising goal.
Stroud Stragglers, presented a cheque for £15,000 to fundraising manager James Rogers for Cancer Research UK at Minchinhampton Golf Club earlier this month.
The staggering amount had been raised over just six months, their supports donated to various creative capers that the group undertook, helping them to reach and exceed all expectations.
“We have raised this phenomenal amount through various different events over the last six months, including producing a ‘Calendar Girls’ inspired calendar and holding a ball with auction and raffle,” Stroud Stragglers committee member Wendy Old told the paper.
“We also popped up at Stroud and Painswick Goodwill events, and we even had a stall at Stroud Farmers’ Market too!
“We are truly grateful to all of our supporters who helped us raise much-needed funds for charities which are so close to our hearts,” she continued, paying tribute to supporters.
The full fundraising amount will be split equally between the Alzheimer Society and cancer charities local to Stroud.
