Lead Cancer Nurse Gina Beard said: “What an amazing sum of money! We are extremely grateful to the ladies from the Cavegirl Fitness Training Group. We are so humbled when the public choose to support our health board charity and the services that are delivering cancer treatments.

“We are able to use the money to support a better patient experience. Monies raised in this way help fund resources such as helpful books and play therapy for children of people going through cancer treatment, improvements to the unit environment that make it a more comfortable place, and support pilots like the CaPS project which is providing psychological support to people affected by cancer and their carers and relatives.

“All of these would not be possible without amazing fundraisers like these ladies – I hope you all had fun too!”
