Charity
 
 
 

In 1962 the Hereford Times donated a Charity Challenge Cup to mark the Diamond Jubilee of the League, since then skittlers have been very generous in their support and a vast amount has been raised for local charities.
This seasons nominated charity is Breast Cancer Haven, Hereford.

Breast Cancer Haven, Hereford is a support centre for anyone affected by breast cancer.
They offer complementary therapies to help deal with the side effects of breast cancer treatment, as well as emotional and practical support.
A breast care nurse is available to offer information and advice, either in person or by phone, and there are a number of support groups and exercise classes throughout the week. They receive no government or NHS funding, and rely completely on fundraising activities and charitable donations to continue offering the excellent level of service that they do to people (families as well as the person with the illness) when they are most frightened and vulnerable.
