PEMBROKESHIRE people have once again shown their support for the Bone Cancer Research Trust (BCRT) with a huge turn-out for a charity bingo night.

Caroline Bridle of Saundersfoot organised the fundraiser which brought in the grand total of £2,000. Of this, £1,600 will go to the Daniel Bridle Memorial Fund, which supports the BCRT's research into osteosarcoma.

This was the type of bone cancer to which Caroline's son, Daniel, lost his life in 2014 at the age of 18.

The remaining £400 will go to a young man, Scott, who was having treatment at the same time as Daniel, and who is now undergoing clinical trials.

The bingo night was held at Kilgetty RAOB Club on September 28, ahead of Bone Cancer Awareness Week which took place earlier this month.

Said Caroline: "There was a wonderful, positive atmosphere and not a seat spare. Thank you, Pembrokeshire, for your continued support in remembering our son Daniel."

She also thanked the many individuals and businesses who donated prizes for the bingo and raffles.

Scott's parents were at the event to receive the £400 on his behalf.

Explained Caroline: "Scott is now 20, but was 14 when we met. He was on treatment at the same time as Daniel, and in the next bed. Scott has had bone cancer three times in the past, and our wonderful NHS have found pioneering treatment to treat him. He is now on a clinical trial, which means he has to fly from Cardiff to Newcastle every three weeks of his life to keep fighting this disease.

"Scott lives with an incredible amount of stress, which is why we wanted to give him a treat."

The next local fundraiser for the Daniel Bridle Memorial Fund will be the annual harbourside Christmas carol concert in Saundersfoot, organised by Susan and Brian McKehon.
