St Mary’s Folk Choir, Rasharkin have presented Action Cancer with a cheque for £800, the proceeds of an evening of hymns, prayers, mediation and music.

Taking place at St, Mary’s Parish, Rasharkin on February 19 the evening was great success with special guest Justin McGurk.

Action Cancer supporter Brian McCart explained: “We all know some who has been affected by cancer and I want to thank everyone so much for helping us to raise this fantastic amount.”

Action Cancer Events Officer Arlene Creighton added: “Action Cancer provides breast screening for 11,000 women aged 40-49 and 70+ each year. For every 1,000 women screened, six women will have their cancers detected, hopefully at an early and treatable stage.

“Our Big Bus visits 235 locations every year and this is only possible because of the generous support Action Cancer receives from the local community. We are indebted to St Mary’s Folk Choir, Brian and everyone at Rasharkin Parish for their generosity and support.”
