Ashton businesswoman steps up for Cancer Research

Normally behind the counter of her business Decisions ladies wear in Ashton, Val Unwin has taken up a different job. 

With the business closed during lockdown, Val has decided to step up to the challenge of raising money for Cancer Research by doing a 10,000 steps a day challenge during March.

Val said: “I know the pandemic has a terrible impact on fundraising for many charities that have lost so much income. 

“By doing my bit I wanted to support the great work done by Cancer Research and I’d like to thank everyone who has supported me with a donation already.”

Cancer survival rates have doubled over the past 40 years. 

Consistent progress is being made, but improvements to technology and ground-breaking work offer new opportunities to find different ways to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer and improve survival rates even further.
