Silence proved to be golden for Rosemere Cancer Foundation after they received a donation of over £600 from carol singing that couldn’t happen.

Neighbours in Greencroft, Penwortham, usually form small groups to spread Christmas cheer with traditional house-to-house carolling in the week before Christmas, collecting donations for charity.

This is organised by Dorothy Watson and longstanding Rosemere Cancer Foundation supporter Margaret Dunn.

Margaret said: “We are delighted to be able to able to give this donation Rosemere Cancer Foundation. It shows what a lovely, community-spirited neighbourhood Greencroft is.”
