A DORSET cancer charity is celebrating a blooming marvellous donation thanks to a successful flower show.

Owermoign Flower Club held its annual Flower Festival at Athelhampton House and raised over £700.

Further funds were added to the pot from a previous charity event by Patrick Cooke of Athelhampton House and they were able to hand over a cheque for £1,000 to the Dorset Cancer Care Foundation.

Pam Jeffries from the Dorset Cancer Care Foundation accepted the cheque.
