Charity Stalwart Retires

Pamela Bellman, the Honorary President of the Stonehenge and Pewsey Vale Support Group of Cancer Research UK (CRUK), has retired after over 30 years involvement in fund raising for the Cancer charity.

Pam became Chairman of the Support Group in 1985, and continued in that role until 1991 when she was made honorary President. Her involvement as an active committee member and charity worker continued until quite recently and in the summer of last year she opened her gardens for a CRUK fund raising afternoon with cream teas.

Earlier this month Pam was presented with a long service brooch by Maria Gomez, the Area Volunteer Manager of CRUK, and Nesta Waine the Chairman of the CRUK local Group, and she was also given a certificate to honour her untiring work in helping to raise many thousands of pounds for the Charity.

In paying tribute to Pam’s work for the Charity, Nesta Waine, shown in the picture with Pam, said: “Pam was not simply a brilliant chairman and organiser, she was also a worker and would always be there helping at events. We’ve often relied on Pam for advice in the past and I’m sure that this will continue”.
