A NEW lunch club which aims to raise money for cancer charities has got off to a flying start.

Ladies for Cancer Charities was only launched in October but has already raised £600 for Breast Cancer Care from its first two lunches at The Garden House Hotel in Stamford.

Chairman Sylvia Beeton said: “The group has taken off so well. Many of our members have had cancer themselves so this is a lovely social gathering for them as well as an opportunity to support charities which have supported them.”

The committee is made up of women who were previously members of other local fundraising groups.

They hope the new group will be able to raise money for a different national cancer charity each year to support research into different types of cancer which have affected them personally.
