(The website link that was here no longer works) Volunteers at the Audlem Aid to Cancer Research shop in Shropshire Street have presented Cancer Research UK with a cheque for £20,000. This amazing sum has been raised in the last 12 months. The cheque was presented to the charity's community fundraising officer Michelle Lamb by Ann Bowles, Christine Plume and Alan Jenkins.
Group secretary Christine Plume said: "We've been open here for 35 years and are still going strong. We have 30 brilliant volunteers at the moment. We're a completely independent group and all the money has been raised from the three fairs we hold each year and obviously from sales in the shop. There are some really nice clothes on offer," she added, "and everything goes to a good cause. You're guaranteed a warm welcome."
"The committee would like to thank our volunteers, helpers, donors and customers who support the shop and our fairs. They all help us to make a positive contribution to a very worthy cause."
