Teams of 4 paddle a traditional coracle boat in a relay race across the river, with the winners being crowned world champions! As well as being great fun, the aim of the event is to raise money for the vital services provided by Macmillan Cancer Support. In 2018, we raised £45,000, and with your help we are hoping to beat last years fantastic total! All money raised through fundraising pages will go towards help people affected by cancer in Shropshire.
Please come along and support Anita, Shona, Laura and Jemma as Team Thera-Peas!
A message from Shona; As a Macmillan Physiotherapist I see first hand, the amazing work that Macmillan Cancer Support do- for example petitioning the government to ensure Cancer patients get free prescriptions and are treated fairly at work. They also provide grants to people who are struggling financially as a result of attending for treatment. Importantly they provide excellent patient information on all types of Cancer and its treatments. Along with Macmillan Clinical Nurse Specialists there are Macmillan Pharmacists, Social Workers, GP’s, Benefits Advisors,, Dieticians, Speech and Language Therapists, Occupational Therapists and Physiotherapists- all working with people with Cancer during and after treatment to help them to live their best life possible.
Please support our team! Thank you very much!
