Galliers Homes and sister company Cameron have helped to collect over £6,000 towards the £45,000 total raised from this year's Coracle World Championships for Macmillan. 

Louise Dwyer, Technical Manager, joined Kate Thomas, Trish Randles and Jayney Davies from Macmillan to celebrate the success of this year's fund raising efforts which topped last year's figure by over £11,000. 

Kate Thomas, Macmillan fundraising manager for Shropshire said response to the event had been 'phenomenal' and the charity was overwhelmed with the amount raised.

"It was fantastic and we are absolutely delighted," said Kate. "We did not expect to raise this amount of money and we were so lucky with the teams taking part.

"Galliers, who were our headline sponsors, not only raised a great deal of money as a team, they also raised around £6,000 by fundraising."

The Coracle Committee have decided that all the money raised from the event will be ploughed back in to cancer care in Shropshire. "It is very much a county event," added Kate. "There was a great desire for the money to be spent in Shropshire and this is something we will do."
