Sadly we will have all felt the devastating impact of cancer, either personally or to those we hold dear.

PCE have recently made donations to both the Paul Cole Cancer Fund and to the Beccles Friends of Cancer Research UK, who are both incredibly inspirational charities, local to us here in Beccles.

The Paul Cole Cancer Fund was set up in April of 2000, following the loss of Paul Cole at 35 years of age. His family are eternally grateful for the support they received from Macmillan and Marie Curie nurses, so set out on a mission to raise an astonishing amount of money for Macmillan, Marie Curie and both the Louise Hamilton and Sandra Chapman Units of the James Paget Hospital. To date the Fund has raised in excess of £300k.

The Beccles Friends of Cancer Research UK are a group of 8 ladies who are committed to raising much needed funds for the amazing work of Cancer Research. The ladies arrange several community events, with plans to add ‘Breakfast Mornings’ Fashion Shows, Afternoon Teas and Supper Events with entertainment.

We salute the incredible efforts and achievements of both charities.
