And the Acorn Cancer Support Group, which covers the St Ives, Huntingdon and Ramsey areas, received cheques totalling £1,500 during the celebrations at the Dolphin Hotel in St Ives.Colin Hyams, vice-chairman, said: It was amazing, it was really amazing. Mr Hyams, who became involved with the group when his late wife Ann was diagnosed with cancer, said: People dont know where to go or who to talk to when they or a loved one are diagnosed. When my late wife was diagnosed she was told about Acorn by Macmillan and I have been involved ever since. Mr Hyams, who has since remarried, said carers often remained supporting the group after they had lost a loved one because it helped them feel they were not alone. The anniversary was marked with a reception at the hotel during which a cheque for £500 was presented by personnel from RAF Wyton and a further £1,000 from helpers at a coffee session at the Corn Exchange in St Ives.
