Almost 30 years of outstanding leadership and loyal service to a Suffolk fundraising committee has been rewarded with a special recognition.

As chairman of the Woodbridge Macmillan Cancer Support Committee, Juliet Bellfield has seen the group raise almost £1million to change lives for the better and help ensure that nobody has to suffer cancer alone.

Almost all of the committee’s members have served under Mrs Bellfield’s leadership.

Macmillan Cancer Support celebrated here exceptional contribution with a Special Directors’ Award for Outstanding Support to Macmillan – presented at Grove Court, Woodbridge.

Every penny of the money raised for Macmillan by Mrs Bellfield’s Woodbridge Committee is spent in Suffolk.

Over 2015 and 2016, the committee has pledged to raise £165,000 to pay for one of the new five-chair chemotherapy areas in the Woolverstone Macmillan Centre at Ipswich Hospital.

If you too would like to make a donation to help the committee reach its target, send a cheque (made payable to Macmillan Cancer Support) to Mr Chris Woods, Treasurer, Woodbridge Committee for Macmillan Cancer Support, 16 Ipswich Road, Woodbridge IP12 4BU.
