A GENEROUS teenager has donated another half of his summer wages to our One in Eight appeal for The Haven in St Owen Street.

Nick Eaton, 16, from King's Thorn was inspired to donate half of his wages from August and September after hearing how much the breast cancer support service had helped a friend of his family.

He had already given £75 from his August wages and this week he gave £125 from his September wages.

This weekend the fundraising continues at The Old Market Shopping Centre in Hereford.

On Saturday and Sunday a team from The Haven will be rattling collection buckets and encouraging people to trek on the treadmill in support of the team of Herefordians currently completing a trek in the Sahara.

All funds raised over the weekend will be added to the One in Eight campaign total.

Postman Mike Chandler is going to join the team on Sunday to run a marathon on the treadmill dressed in The Haven’s camel suit and headgear.

Mr Chandler has run many a marathon for The Hereford Haven- raising hundreds of thousands of pounds from residents who respond to his annual letter.

He will start the marathon at 10.30am and would love to see as many people as possible on the day.

The appeal has so far raised more than £34,000. We are aiming to raise £60,000 and the money will go towards funding a nurse at The Haven for two years.

This week £605 was donated anonymously and C A Peill donated £50.

Update: The Hereford Haven won't be collecting on Saturday. But they will still be at The Old Market on Sunday.
