Planning is underway for this year’s Stand Up To Cancer event, headed up by Anna Harrison, manager of the Cancer Research UK shop in Montague Street.

Last year’s event saw Bute residents congregate in Guildford Square in October for the largest photo-call The Buteman has been involved in; in doing so, the community helped the local fund-raising shop take the number one spot of all shops in the UK by raising over £4000.

This year’s event will be in a similar vein, although Anna is hoping to organise a number of smaller events in the run up to the day, including a sponsored wax and sponsored slim.

If you’ve got any fund-raising ideas you’d like to run past Anna, you can pop into the shop in Montague Street or send her a message via the charity Facebook page (click the link to the right of this article to visit Facebook).
