On Saturday Sutton’s MP opened the Cancer Support Centre Summer Fayre, held at the Centre on Lindridge Road. Despite the frequent downpours, spirits were not quelled and everyone had a fantastic time while raising money for an extremely worthy cause.
Among those attending was Vicki Davis from Mere Green, who raised an impressive £1800 for the Support Centre this year, and presented her cheque to them at the Summer Fayre.
Visitors were entertained by local DJ Paul Kelly of Radio Sandwell, returning for another year to provide the soundtrack for the afternoon and were able to browse stalls selling a range of hand-crafted items, to sample the offerings of the cake stall and to try their luck at the Tombola provided by the Sutton Vesey Rotary Club.
Newly-elected Councillors Ewan Mackay, Ken Wood and Andrew Hardie also attended the event, and took part enthusiastically in the wide variety of activities on offer.
Andrew Mitchell commented “I would like to thank everyone at the Centre who worked so hard to make this day such a fantastic occasion, and who work throughout the year providing such excellent support and care for those who visit the centre”.
