Richmond and Dales Soroptimist president Babs Hunt has presented a cheque for £625 to the Breast Cancer Support Group @ The Friarage.

The donation was made at the group’s monthly meeting at the Village Inn Brompton.

The money was raised at a bingo night run by the president and her husband, with support from family, friends and other Soroptimists.

The money will be used by the group to provide support to those who need added physical or psychological assistance.

This can be anything from paying travel costs to access to treatment to childcare costs whilst undergoing treatment.

Those assisted are anonymous to the group, with the requests for assistance made by hospital staff who care for patients in the breast cancer department.
