Alder Grove Firefly Donation


Alder Grove hold their weekly coffee morning each Wednesday from 10.00 am – 12.00 pm. A few weeks ago, they decided to have a Bring and Buy stall to raise money for Firefly.

'Firefly is about life – living it to the full and enjoying every second of it. We want to remove the stigma and embarrassment of personal cancer problems in young men and women, giving them the confidence to communicate with friends, family and health professionals should the occasion arise.
Founded in 2006 by Denise Dunn after her personal experience with cancer, Firefly help local people in their time of need, making a difficult time a little easier. Firefly is now run by Dee's fiancé Chewy Bacchus and close family friend Paul Taylor after Dee passed away in 2014, with a promise to Dee to keep her legacy running.
The Firefly Express vehicles provide free transport to local cancer patients and their families in the borough of Doncaster to regional treatment hospitals, using our fantastic team of volunteer drivers. We currently have a fleet of eight vehicles to cope with the ever-increasing requirements.
Using our personal experiences, we are determined to change the journey for cancer patients while raising awareness, particularly amongst young people, to spot the signs before it advances.'

This week a representative from Firefly came to the Alder Grove coffee morning to collect a cheque for the amount of £194.00. What an amazing achievement!

Alder Grove have decided to keep their stall running each week from now on, raising money for different local charities. Why not come along, enjoy a toasted tea cake and take a look at the stall.
