Doreen's Story

Doreen starting giving her time to Lingen Davies in 2016 when her husband, Des, was being treated for prostate cancer in the Lingen Davies centre.

When you’re sitting waiting for treatment, you realise you would do anything to help raise money for such a fantastic cause! You don’t realise how many people are affected by cancer until it’s you.

Doreen's Fundraising Journey

Doreen had close ties to the high sheriff of Powys who was fundraising for us throughout her year, so became a regular face at the fundraising office; the more Doreen came to see us, the more she got involved!

In September 2016, Doreen held her first fundraiser – she shaved her head at a charity lunch! This raised an incredible £3691.59 and from then on her fundraising has rapidly grown! Doreen is now an area co-ordinator for Newtown, meaning she represents the charity at events in her local area, gives talks about the work we do and attends cheque presentations on our behalf. She takes every opportunity she can to raise money for Lingen Davies, as well as raising our profile in the Mid Wales area – she can regularly be seen organising supermarket collections, selling raffle tickets and finding fundraising avenues for us explore.

Thank You Doreen

Doreen also organises her own large events. She has recently been the mastermind behind a three tenors concert in Llanfair Caerienion and is busy putting together a charity lunch for 17th June; a lovely summer buffet followed by an auction. If you would like more information about the lunch, please click here.

Doreen’s time is greatly appreciated by all at Lingen Davies and is helping us raise £1.25 million for the Ruby Appeal! Doreen plans to continue volunteering for Lingen Davies and increasing her fundraising total!
