Charity donations could be doubled

DONATIONS to a Pill cancer charity could be doubled this week.

Penny Brohn Cancer Care is hoping to raise �24,000 to begin running outreach courses across the UK.

To help boost funds, the charity is taking part in the Big Give Christmas Challenge, which offers the chance for donations to be doubled.

The initiative is releasing a new pot of match-funding at 10am every day up to and including Friday.

This means the closer people make a donation to 10am the better the chance of it being matched.
