Cllr Trevor Johns picks the North Devon Chemotherapy Appeal as his mayoral charity for the year ahead
Mayor of Bideford Cllr Trevor Johns has chosen the North Devon Chemotherapy Appeal as his mayoral charity for the year ahead.
Mr Johns said the need had been brought home by recent statistics that while previously it had been said that one in three people would need some form of cancer treatment, now that had become one in two.
â€œThere are so many deserving charities, but cancer is so prevalent and touches so many families,â€ he said. â€œNearly every family will have contact with someone who has or has had cancer. This appeal will save people having to travel to Exeter for treatment.â€
