Can I thank Cancer Research UK for sending pictures of their Stand Up To Cancer event held outside the Cancer Research UK shop in Bury Street on Sat 19th Oct. Here they are belatedly.
Stand Up To Cancer is an annual fund-raising event organised by Cancer Research UK nation wide. All the shops are encouraged to take part and organise local events and raise money for life saving research. Cancer Research UK in Abingdon decided to Stand Up (and Shout) to Cancer with the help of Town Crier Penny Clover.
Abingdon shoppers were encouraged to ring the bell and have a go themselves. Everyone had a great time and they raised just under £500 and left a lot of signatures. That picture of the signatures I’m saving for November 1st (City Daily Photo Theme Day : Heights).
