Shaldon Branch – Cancer Research

The Shaldon branch of Cancer Research UK was started in 2000 and has been extremely active raising well on the way to £200,000 almost entirely within Shaldon.

We have a large committee of dedicated volunteers who hold coffee mornings as well as house-to-house collections in April, an Open Gardens event in June, and a Strawberry Tea in July. Various other events throughout the year contribute to an annual substantial total going to help fund life-saving research. Of course this year is very different.

Shaldon Hidden Gardens 2020

The Hidden Gardens have now quietly slipped away having given many of us a view into a world not usually seen as well perhaps as ideas to consider for our own gardens.

We have needed our private outdoor spaces more than ever this year so we hope you have enjoyed your virtual visit to our hidden gardens and wish to thank you very much indeed for online and local donations amounting to £1,787.50. A magnificent total which will help towards restarting those research studies that foundered due to shortages in funding and which may yet help any of us in the long term.
