ANGLESEY beachgoers donated £814 to benefit cancer charities.

The money was collected by Jeff Evans, at Porthdafarch Beach, on the island.

The cash will be split between Breast Cancer Care Cymru, Prostate Cymru, Testicular Cancer (John Hartson Foundation) and the Alaw Ward, Ysbyty Gwynedd. They all receive £203.50.

Jeff Evans, of Holyhead, said: "It is a fact that everyone in society is affected in some manner with cancer, either personally, or within family, friends and colleague.

"Everyone can have a role in fighting this disease, and raising awareness of cancer symptoms or raising funds to assist in finding a cure.

"During the summer, and holiday season, it was particularly pleasant to view beach goers who donated to this cause. I applaud them for their care and generosity."
