Village resident Sally Sarling celebrates her 72nd birthday today 🙂 and we wish her many happy returns.
Sally will also be celebrating 20 years participation in the Race For Life, raising funds for Cancer Research UK, taking part in the 5Km race in Poole on Saturday, 3rd June. That’s quite an accomplishment!
Sally recently announced that this would be her final year. She began running in the Race For Life after both her parents and her badminton partner died from cancer.
1 in 2 people will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime and cancer survival rates have doubled over the past 40 years. Consistent progress is being made but improvements to technology and ground-breaking work offer new opportunities to find different ways to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer and improve survival rates even further.
Please help Cancer Research UK improve results even faster by donating to Sally’s Just Giving page.
Thank you & good luck Sally!
As Vikki and Spike from the White Lion will tell you – any Young Farmers fundraising always involves an obviously good party and a healthy amount of alcohol, but in these difficult times the Dorset YFC members have decided to hold a Quiz fundraiser for Matt’s chosen charity “Orchid” who research and raise awareness of all male cancers.
In late December 2019 Matt Frampton was diagnosed with testicular cancer, and had surgery on Christmas Eve. Unfortunately in March 2020 a CT scan confirmed that it had spread and have 3 secondary tumours rapidly growing on his lung and he started 9 weeks of chemotherapy, under the care of the oncology team at Southampton.
The YFC are raising funds to show support for their Dorset Federation of Young Farmers County Chairman, Matt Frampton.
