Couple celebrate anniversary by donating to Swansea cancer support centre
A COUPLE have been celebrating a milestone in their marriage by donating hundreds of pounds to help boost a Swansea cancer support centre.
Tom and Ruby Murphy marked 60 years together by holding a diamond wedding anniversary at the Langland Bay Golf Club with their friends, neighbours and families.
In lieu of presents the Ynysforgan-based couple asked if donations could be made instead and given to Maggie’s South West Wales, which is based within the grounds of Swansea’s Singleton Hospital.
Mrs Murphy, aged 79, said she tragically lost her sister to cancer and so many of her friends had been touched by the disease they wanted to support the charity.
She said: “We requested a donation to Maggie’s and managed to raise £500 through the luncheon.
“It’s marvellous — I think it’s wonderful.”
