Falklands hero helps Wells Tangent Club raise thousands
One of the most famous survivors of the Falklands War helped Wells Tangent Club raise thousands of pound's for charity.
The club's regional lunch heard a talk by Simon Weston, who suffered serious burns during the South Atlantic conflict.
At the talk, along with a raffle, raised £3,000 for national charity Look Good, Feel Better, which supports and encourages people with cancer.
The charity holds group workshops to teach beauty techniques which help sufferers combat the appearance-related side effects of cancer and its treatment.
Mr Weston, said that the charity carries out invaluable work for men as well as women.
“Appearance is fundamental,” he said. “Men as well as women need to feel confident about themselves in order to fight their illnesses, and Look Good, Feel Better sums it up.
"I am very glad to have been able to help with City of Wells Tangent’s efforts for such a worthwhile cause.”
As well as an inspiring talk from Simon Weston, members enjoyed a lunch, retail therapy in the form of handbags, jewellery, and other gifts, and of course the raffle, which had prizes such as a holiday for four in Marbella.
