Last Friday, July 28, a street collection was held in Beccles for Cancer Research UK. A total of £289.25 was raised.

Gary Bennett, from the Lauren Lou appeal, said: “Thank you to my volunteers and the very generous public.”

On Saturday, July 29, Team Lauren Lou held a bucket collection at the Morrisons store on the North Quay Retail Park in Lowestoft.

Further funds were colleacted for its local cancer appeals fund, which helps local people in need, as £421.49p was collected,

Mr Bennett said: “Thank you to Morrisons’ management and staff for making us very welcome and thanks must also go to my volunteers for covering all day. But above all thank you to the very generous kind Morrisons customers.”
