RETIRED cleaning company boss Ray Tunsich is organising a golf day and raffle for the Bronglais Chemo Appeal in memory of his wife Jan.

Ray has already raised more than £3,000 through a fundraising page: www.justgiving­.com/fundraising/jan-tunsich

Now he and his family are arranging a golf day on 9 August to take place during Open Week at Penrhos Golf Club in Llanrhystud – and are appealing for raffle prizes.

Ray said: “Jan went to see a doctor with back pain in October last year and, after a scan, we received the devastating news that she had terminal cancer of the gall bladder. She passed away at the end of March this year, aged 75, surrounded by family.

“In her courageous fight against cancer, Jan received tremendous support from the inspirational oncologist Dr Elin Jones and the wonderful team at the chemotherapy day unit in Bronglais Hospital, and the Aberaeron district nurses.

“It was Jan’s express wish that her friends and family support the Appeal for the final £500,000 needed to open a new chemotherapy unit. The new unit will make such a difference.”

“We are thrilled to have raised over £3,000 so far and hope to boost this at the golf day. There will be collection buckets and a raffle in the evening,” added Ray, 76, who has himself had the all-clear after having prostate cancer.

If anyone would like to donate a raffle prize, contact Ray on 07896 073596.
