In March, CHURCHDOWN AND DISTRICT FLOWER ARRANGING SOCIETY presented a cheque in the sum of £600 to FOCUS. Yvonne Kimber, Manager of the FOCUS Cancer Information and Support Centre received the cheque on behalf of FOCUS at the March meeting of the club, which was held at Norton Village Hall. Each year the club raises money for a charity and this year FOCUS was the chosen charity as some of the members of the club have had Breast Cancer and have all received their treatment in the Oncology Department at Cheltenham General Hospital. The funds were raised when the club had a lunch, which was provided by two members, at Corse and Staunton Village Hall along with a demonstration by Laura Leong, who is a National Florist.
