A BRIDGWATER couple celebrated their recent golden wedding anniversary in style, raising money for a good cause in the process.

Gill and Peter Slocombe held a party but asked friends and family not to bring presents, but instead make a donation to the Beacon Centre at Musgrove Park Hospital in Taunton.

To their surprise they managed to raise well over £500.

Gill, a town and district councillor, said she was grateful to everyone who donated.

Gill and Pete are both surviving cancer patients and wanted to show their appreciation for the Beacon Centre.
