Last month it was a pleasure to attend the launch of Tenovus Cancer Care’s Big Birthday Raffle to mark the charity’s 75th birthday. There are some great prizes on offer including the star prize of a new car. Raffle tickets are available from Tenovus Cancer Care stores and the raffle will be drawn on the 15th October. The charity is hoping to raise vital funds to support its mobile units. It was also wonderful to see the Tenovus Bridgend Sing with Us choir again- another stunning performance.
There will be many events over the coming year to mark the 75th birthday including a ‘Light up the Night’ walk by Aberystwyth Friends of Tenovus, a ‘Hymns and Pimms’ party hosted by Aberdare Friends of Tenovus and an evening with Rob Brydon at a birthday ball in June at the Celtic Manor Resort.
I would like to thank Tenovus for all the good work that they do in our communities. Here’s to another 75 years where many more people will be offered hope where previously none existed and who are given inspiration by other people to look at life anew and to look forward with optimism.
