Raising funds to beat breast cancer
A DISAPPOINTING turnout did nothing to dampen the enthusiasm of Clevedon businesswomen who are raising funds to beat breast cancer.
Organisers of a table-top sale held at the Triangle Club at the weekend blamed the sunny weather for keeping customers away from stalls packed full of make-up, candles, glassware and craft items.
Advanced sales leader for Avon, Nicola Cummings, said she advertised the event by distributing a raffle around town centre shops and putting up posters, as well as putting a signpost in last week’s Times.
She said: “We were very disappointed as this is the second time this has happened and I feel sorry for the people who paid for a table.
“I came up with the idea because Avon does a lot for breast cancer charities and I have two school friends who have been struck down by the disease this year.

She said the �194 raised was better than nothing and it will not put her off organising future events.
