Pauline's Story

Pauline, from Halfway House near Shrewsbury, has been a supporter of the charity for many years, and has raised thousands of pounds through an ever-increasing array of different activities.

Pauline's story

Pauline has fundraised since she was a child, and her family has been touched by the effects of cancer. In the early days of the charity, Pauline saw that chemotherapy was being delivered in a tiny space in a clinic at the hospital, and so saw a real need for better facilities.

Charity Fundraising

In the early days of the charity, Pauline was working for in ambulance control in Powys, and a team of her colleagues decided to push a bed from the Welsh border into the centre of Shrewsbury, to contribute to the appeal. This raised over £1000, and she didn’t stop there.

Over the years, she has run concerts, book sales, rummage sales and a 24 hour Whist Drive, all to support our local services. Pauline has a real taste for adventure, and on her 70th birthday she walked across the Sydney Harbour Bridge. For her 80th birthday, in 2015, headed over to North Wales to have a go on the longest zipwire in Europe! Her zipwire adventure raised £2,040.57 in sponsorship, to add to her already impressive contribution. We can’t wait to see what she has planned for her 90th!
