The Angel Fund Breast Cancer Support Group received a welcome boost from two fundraising events in Carbonear.

Earlier this year, Sandra Chubbs Abbott of Medical and Physical Therapy Supplies shaved her head to raise $2,555 for the group, which helps cancer patients in the Trinity-Conception region with out-of-pocket expenses.

Then on Oct. 20, Rex Cotter staged a concert that raised $2,173. The all-female line up included Marlene Clarke, Sarah Smith, Lorraine Brown, Joanie Trask, Caitlin Pike, Jennifer Baker, Abigail Slade, Sharon LeShane, Vicki Doyle and the St. Pats Songsters.
