A local golf club has donated £20,000 to Peterborough’s Cancer Wellbeing Service b

Milton Golf Club selected the Service (based at Peterborough City Hospital) to receive the annual fundraising donation in recognition of the support it provides to anyone affected by cancer.

The amount donated to North West Anglia Hospitals Charity is the most raised to date by the Club, some of whose members themselves have benefitted from the Cancer Wellbeing Service in some way.

Former Captains, players and other representatives from Peterborough Milton Golf Club presented the cheque to the Cancer Wellbeing Service manager Lisa Deacon.

Lisa said: “We are delighted to receive such a generous donation, and privileged that the largest amount ever raised by the golf club has come to the Service and will benefit so many people from in and around Peterborough.”

The Cancer Wellbeing Service provides practical and emotional support to people affected by cancer, as well as their family and friends.

Since opening in 1992, it has grown to offer a range of talking therapies, complementary therapies, lifestyle and welfare advice, arts and craft classes or just a comforting and welcoming place for a cup of tea and a chat.

The North West Anglia Hospitals Charity, which has Strictly Come Dancing judge Craig Revel Horwood as its patron, supports staff and patients throughout the Trust’s hospitals at Peterborough, Hinchingbrooke and Stamford.
