Thanks from cancer charity

A CANCER charity has thanked residents after their tea-riffic efforts raised over £15,000.

Marie Curie Cancer Care received the funding boost from residents in Dunbartonshire, Glasgow and Lanarkshire who took part in its Blooming Great Tea Party event during the summer.

The money will be used to provide more free nursing care to terminally ill patients.

Community fundraiser Karen Savage said: “I’d like to say a massive thank you to everyone who held a Blooming Great Tea Party this summer.”
