A SUPPORT group for bowel cancer sufferers has celebrated its sixth anniversary.

Colon-aid helps those diagnosed or recovering from the disease in the Yeovil area.

The group raised more than £1,000 by holding a cream tea afternoon, with £800 being donated to St Margaret's Hospice and £300 to Yeovil District Hospital's colorectal and stoma care department.

Membership of the group is made up of patients and carers between 50 and 80 years old.

The group meets monthly and can be contacted at www.bowelcancersupport-yeovil.co.uk or by contacting Rowland Hackett on 01935 424771 or Stan Turner on 01935 862474.
