Seventy guests from the local community joined the Committee at Gwernymynydd Community Centre for an afternoon of delicious homemade sandwiches and cakes, served in the finest bone china.

Mike Carter, North West Cancer Research Deputy Chair, was on hand to say a few words while Community Fundraiser, Tess, presented the Committee with a commemorative plaque to recognize their longstanding devotion to fundraising for cancer research projects.

The event raised £1,400 which is added to the £1,075,589 raised by the group since their inception.

Throughout the years the Committee has hosted a plethora of fundraising activities, including quiz nights, coffee mornings, murder mystery events and garden parties.

In 2018, the Committee was honoured with the President’s Lifetime Achievement Award at the North West Cancer Research Gala and Awards Dinner, recognizing and thanking the group for their efforts in holding fundraising events and raising awareness of the Charity in their community.

Sharon Knott, Chair of Mold Committee, said: “The Committee would like to say a big thank you to everyone who has supported our fundraising efforts over the years. The generosity of people and companies in our area is fantastic. Without their help and support we wouldn’t be able to raise the money we do for North West Cancer Research.”

Alastair Richards, CEO of North West Cancer Research said: “As a Charity we want to thank Mold Committee for the amazing work they have undertaken throughout the years. Over the last seven decades they have raised an enormous amount of money that has gone a great distance in helping to understand the cause, improve the care, and find the cure for cancer in our region and beyond.”
