In partnership with Macmillan, Can-cervive was invited by Warner Leisure Hotels to attend a meet and greet at Gunton Hall with Gareth Gates, who made his name on talent show Pop Idol in the early noughties.

Group founders Emma Tills and Jo Pawlett had the chance to sit with Gates in the hall’s gardens on Saturday, July 21, and spoke to him about their efforts to support those diagnosed with cancer in the Lowestoft area.

The group also received a grant from Macmillan that allowed 40 members to be treated to cream tea at the Cliff Hotel in Gorleston.
