Dougherty Quinn, sponsors of the Douglas Choral Union’s production of Beauty & the Beast in February present Bowel Cancer IOM with a cheque for £570

Paul Blake from DQ said “Bowel Cancer IOM were our chosen charity for the sponsors evening last month at Beauty and the Beast. Thanks to the generosity of the Isle of Man public, Bowel Cancer IOM collected £570 on the night. We pledged to match the amount collected. Therefore £1140 in total was raised for this incredibly worthwhile cause.”

Heather Norman, Chairperson of Bowel Cancer IOM, said “We are extremely grateful to the Manx public and to Dougherty Quinn for raising £1140; sadly Bowel Cancer is the 2nd most common cause of cancer death, affecting men and women equally. We aim to raise awareness of Bowel Cancer as raising awareness of the symptoms and getting an early diognosis can drastically reduce death rates”.
