Welcome

Welcome to the Stonehenge and Pewsey Vale Local Committee of Cancer Research UK. From our name you can see that we cover a very wide sprawling rural area, from Pewsey out to the Collingbournes and Tidworth, on to Figheldean and Durrington, round to Larkhill and Shrewton taking in Stonehenge and on to Woodborough.

Our sole aim is to raise as much money as possible to fund research into finding cures for the various forms of Cancer.

45 Years And £250k Raised!

In 2016 we celebrated our 45th year of fundraising for Cancer Research UK.

Since we began in the late 1970’s, we’ve raised a massive £250,000

YES a quarter of a million pounds!

Thanks to all those who over the years have helped make this possible.

 

This site has information about our local work, the events we are planning for the forthcoming year and how to contact us.

Together, we really can stand up to Cancer!

CRUK Stonehenge And Pewsey Vale

On Saturday 9th June at The Ship Inn, Upavon James undertook a head shave, he was a bit nervous, the pub was crowded and with everyone cheering him on, at 5.45 the hairdresser began to shave.

In no time at all the deed was done and his hair was on the floor. It was generally agreed that he looked 10 years younger!!

James was doing this in memory of his Mum, who died fairly recently, and he wanted the Stonehenge and Pewsey Vale branch of Cancer Research, to be one of the beneficiaries.

We received the sum of £300 from sponsorship that James had, together with £52 from the sale of CRUK wrist bands. Our thanks go to James of course, and also to the staff at The Ship Inn for hosting this event.

Here are the photo's before and after.

Thanks to………

There are many people, the unsung heroes, who we would like to thank – Manningford Croft Estate Agents who have sponsored the Christmas Fair for the past three years; the local magazine editors who find space for our adverts and articles; Colin Stevens who designed our website and has kept it updated; Peter Bell for providing all the plants for our Plant Sale over the past three years; and of course all of our ‘Supporters’ who turn up at the events and give their time freely to man the stalls, serve in the kitchen and clear up at the end. So a huge thank you to all of these people – together we really can beat Cancer.
