506 very special PETAL Angels have been made for the charity Petal Cancer Research ready for their Annual Charity Ball on 11th February at the The Rendezvous Hotel Skipton They are all packed up and ready to go.
Some St John's Angels Angels are excitedly dusting down their tuxedos, bow ties and posh frocks ready to attend this ball...with their Angels too.
Karen Weaving started Petal Childhood Cancer Research (previously Ribble Valley & White Rose Ladies) some 17 years ago to raise funds specifically for research into childhood cancers on behalf of Cancer Research UK.
In September 2013 Petal, with a committee of seven volunteers, achieved their £1 million milestone and in April 2014 invited His Royal Highness Duke of Gloucester to a celebratory luncheon as Guest of Honour. (The Duke is President of CRUK and an Honorary Member of Petal).
