Hundreds raised for cancer charity
ALMOST �700 has been raised for a testicular cancer charity by a businessman from Clapton-in-Gordano.
March Church, owner of North Somerset oven cleaning and valeting franchise, Ovenu, donated �5 for every household oven he cleaned in November to the Bristol-based charity, It’s In The Bag.
He also had his moustache and goatee shaped like the orange underpants of the charity logo to raise more awareness and donations.
The organisation supported his 27-year-old son after he was diagnosed with the disease as well as throughout his treatment.
It’s In The Bag is run by volunteers and many former patients of Bristol Haemotology and Oncology Centre who act as buddies to sufferers of testicular cancer.

Mark, aged 52, said: “I’m delighted to have raised several hundred pounds for It’s In The Bag, and would like to thank everyone who helped me in my fundraising drive, including friends, family, clients, the landlord and landlady and all the regulars from The Black Horse Inn, Clapton-in-Gordano.
“It’s In The Bag helped not only my son but the whole family come to terms with the news of his diagnosis. Thankfully, after a full course of chemotherapy earlier this year he has been given the all clear.”
