Pig Dyke Raise £1000 for MacMillan Cancer SupportSat 12 Feb, 2022
Pig Dyke Molly was delighted to again donate a cheque for £1000 to MacMillan Cancer Support. Despite the challenges over this Christmas, the group raised money through carol-singing in Oakdale Avenue, Stanground - an annual tradition the residents wait for - and by dancing on New Year's Eve in Coates, Eastrea and Whittlesey. The group is very grateful for the generosity of all who supported this vital charity.
This is the 21st time (and 22nd year) that Pig Dyke Molly has been able to support MacMIllan. The group has raised about £20,000 over the years for this excellent cause, starting at the millennium to raise money in memory of the sister of a team member. The photo shows Pig Dyke boss Tony Forster giving the cheque to Jane Ross and Audrey Scotney of Macmillan.
