West Cornwall MP Derek Thomas supports Cancer Research UK event


West Cornwall MP Derek Thomas was among the dozens of customers and visitors who enjoyed a cup of coffee and slice of cake in the Penzance branch of Barclays Bank recently.

The refreshments were supplied by Olivia Blake and her helpers Deborah Sturges and Gillian Wherry of the St Just branch of Cancer Research UK and was organised with the help of Alice Angove, from Barclays.

The event raised almost £250 for Cancer Research UK, a total which was doubled to nearly £500 with match funding by Barclay Bank.

Mrs Blake said she was “delighted” with how the day went and with the total raised.
