WEYMOUTH: Chip shop customers raise cash for cancer charity
WEYMOUTH’S Alf’s fish and chip shop and the Ladies Alive charity group have raised £820 each for Prostate Cancer UK and the South Dorset Prostate Cancer Support Group.
The money was raised through a joint raffle and donations from customers.
Group spokesman Barry Newman said: “We are unbelievably grateful.
“It is not just the money going to two organisations but the way awareness of prostate cancer has been raised over a wide area.
“The group will use part of the money to provide a finger prick PSA test in November which will be open to men in this part of the county over the age of 45.”
