MEMBERS of the Bath Cancer Unit support Group have thanked volunteers who have helped to raise £5 million over the past 33 years.

More than 70 volunteers attended the special evening held at the Farmhouse Inn at Southwick as a thank you for their support

Over the past 33 years, they have helped to raise more than £5 million to purchase vital life-saving equipment for the Royal United Hospital in Bath.

Tino Polledri, who stepped down after 33 years with the charity, received a gift from BCSUG chairman Michael Taylor and Vice chair Sue Oliver at Tuesday's event.

Certificates were also presented to young fundraisers Amelia Taylor-Fall and Lily and Harry Belgrove for raising money in the 3,000 challenge.

BCUSG raises money to purchase equipment and provide facilities and services unable to be funded by the NHS.
